something i noticed was that the lens flare was very solmenly used this time around. i mean it was still used but it was like unnoticeable.
Overall it was very subtle. Only remember three times when it was very noticeable. 1) On Uhura talking to Kirk before the encounter with the Klingons, 2) Right when Khan surrenders, and 3) When Carol Marcus was pleading with Dad to spare the Enterprise. On Khan it was like a sunburst smudge.
