while watching JUSTICE LEAGUE yesterday I noticed that yet again, there were scenes where the people and the background were disconnected from a colour balance point of view. 

Iím thinking particularly of when Bruce first meets Aquaman and when Clark and Lois talk in the field.
Thor Ragnarok also suffered this in the scene where Thor/
Loki and Odin talk at the cliffs.

I am struggling to understand why this is becoming more commonplace. Digital grading should be able to sort this out but it keeps cropping up.

Pulls me out of the film each time

Thoughts?

Oddly, the bits that were Snyderís go to type thing weíre not the bits I am talking about. Iím not on about the Ďletís blur the edges of the people here and clearly the CGI background is fakeí, Iím on about where there is a real background but the shot has clearly been done in pick ups.

So, one angle looks good but the other angle has this clear CGI, hyper colourised look. But everything is in focus with none of the Snyder blur.

Itís almost like it is being done by a bunch of technicians that has not figured out that there is dust in the air and the foreground characters and the background landscape are the same colour intensity.

Thinking about it, Pretty much the exact opposite of the Snyder blur.
