What did you think of the cinematography in SKYFALL? What visuals resonated with you?

I think his greatest shots were found in the Shanghai sequence, Macau, and after Skyfall's ruin. There were lots of gorgeous contrasts with Deakins' work in this flick.

Probably the best looking Bond film there is. The initial shots of Shanghai and Bond v Patrice in the neon setting were a couple of highlights. The scene where the Chimera sails towards the island looked grand.

Can't rate it with respect to other Bonds because the intentional low-light/available-light look runs counter to pretty much every frame of every previous Bond movie. If Deakins was shooting a remake of SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD in digital, I wouldn't bitch.

But Shanghai looks sensational.

Definitely up there with OHMSS, TB, QOS and YOLT as the most beautiful looking Bond films.

I vote for Average

This be in QOS on a very good level and dificult to beat. The Cinematopgrahpy before i expect some simalar to Casino Royale. Whyle CR be by times to agression with the colors and feels as agression version of Twine and in specialy with the airport scene it be over the top. Good this don't happend but Skyfall in my opnion it look like there doing a step back from the TMND/Twine cinematopgraphy also. I missing a bit of better looking cinematopgraphy.

But the end inprove on Die Another Day, the cinematopgrahy there is much better. Mabey in have been a litle inprovement if there mabey with the scene in the house be a litle bit of cold cinematopgraphy and mabey Robert Elswit have been a better choose for other parts of the movie.

Mr Deakins has beaten up Phil Meheux's job, even when I loved CR and GoldenEye drives me completely mad! :D
