There's something about that screenshot at the beginning of the article. It feels like a much higher quality graphics engine than it should be. Something about the lighting and shadowing makes it seem amazingly better than it normally is. I'm aware that the newer dungeons and content have a bit more graphical polish to them, and that the lich king is always rendered in an extremely high quality, but I've completed Halls of Reflection more times than I can possibly count (on maximum graphics settings) and never has it looked like that before.Maybe I haven't been paying as close attention when I'm actually in there and fighting for my life. Maybe I'm just imagining detail where there is none, and making too big a deal out of it. The screenshot just caught me off guard with the shadows playing off the surfaces in such a detailed way.

It's quite possible your computer renders the image differently due to different graphic card. Abilities of graphic cards tend to vary not only from one brand to another, but also from one manufacturer to another, even from one type to another. Also, you might have maximum settings ingame, but not maximum settings in your card driver software (those are separate). Especially various hardware settings can make your shadows and textures a lot more crispy than your average default setting.
