In Response To: Re: On Official Screenshots... (GrimCleaver)

: Perhaps it's a mistake to be trying to work previous versions of the games
: around the screenshots...

: It's interesting that the page (linked to, above) doesn't make any mention of
: the possibility of composite screenshots. I was always under the
: impression that this was the method used to create many of the official
: screenshots. It seems like a more logical approach to creating the
: complex, action-packed scenes.

: For example, this screenshot is almost certainly a composite image, because
: the scale of the aliens and Bobs is much too small. The giveaway is in the
: texture size - which is 1 world unit. Those Bobs would be less than half a
: world unit in height, and probably wouldn't even be visible due to the
: depth of the sewage (if they were actually standing on the ground, and not
: floating right at the surface, like they are).

: I don't think the above screenshot was the first time Bungie used this
: technique, and it wasn't the last ( link - scroll down to the part
: written by Lorraine Mclees).

Point taken about the composites. I agree the Infinity one looks looks fake. I've no idea why this wasn't commented upon before. I'll add your comments to the page.

I suspect the Nightmare in the Pathways Screen Shot was repainted blue which explains the yellow eyes and slightly different shade of blue.

Fakes and composites. They're everywhere. Can't stand 'em.
