Although there are not a lot of special effects in these photos, what I find interesting is how bright they are. The last three version of the film by Alfonso Cuarón (Prisoner of Azkaban), Mike Newell (Goblet of Fire), and David Yates (Order of the Phoneix) all went for a much darker visuals. Yates may be back at the helm for Half-Blood Prince, but it looks like he may have gone for a very different tone.

I’m not sure if these are just stills or shots from the film, but I’m still surprised by the amount of light being used, especially with such a potentially dark film. This makes me even MORE curious to see what this film looks like (damn summer time Potter!)

What do you think of the photos? Are they what you expected?
