Bioware has done good, borrowing quite a number of positive aspects from Witcher 2, including a varied colour palette. The Frostbite engine allows for incredible lighting mood, and I especially like how alive they make the skin look. This is one of those games where I'm putting priority on graphical fidelity before framerate. Partly because the cutscenes are stuck at 30fps, but also because most of the textures do not have baked lighting in them and thus look awkwardly flat when you turn off HBAO.
