So I was messing around with display settings in tombraider legend and found that the game looks much better with depth of field off...

I'd rather have it turned on. Specially because there's not underwater lighting without DoF.

Do you mean that it is completely dark underwater?

Can someone post a comparison picture? I don't have legend on my computer.

EDIT: Oh NVM

It looks more blocky, but if you don't like the steam then it is better. But I'd rather turn it on. :p

I'd prefer it switched on to be honest. I like the misty kind of look that DOF gives in the second screenshot, like the atmosphere has dirt that is being blown away off the ground.

I definitely think it looks better with DOF on, too. Turning it off may improve your distance vision, but it also removes light blooming effects and fog and the like.

Blooming still exists but the blur effect removal makes the bloom lighting too sharp! xD

I learned about all this when playing Oblivion. Keep DOF on!! xD

I hate Depth of Field - it makes me feel like my lenses have gone foggy. :p I always turn it off in any game that features it.

depth of field adds mist and fog in places where there would not be mist and fog.In bloivia unless it is a terrible day there would be no mist but in legend it is sunny and there is mist so it does not sute the levels but it sutes some levels

And I'm guessing that mist might stretch a bit....
