Re: TDKR palette.
I noticed a progression of palettes. When Selina meets Stryver with her insurance (the Congressman), the palette is reminiscent of Begins. While Batman is pursing the mercenaries and being chased by the GPD, the palette is similar to that of The Dark Knight. Then you get to the palette for TDKR.
Don't let the death of the three horses be in vain-see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
