Default Different shades of bronze? Volk CE28N

Does Volk offer different shades of bronze on the Volk ce28n? A bright and a dark version?
I noticed as I'm browsing through the classified that there seems to be different shades of bronze. Is it just the lighting and results of the photo?

Some look really bright almost gold and some look really dark (almost brown). Here are some examples from the classifieds, both bronze:


Dark (dirty wheels):

The Bronze is the exact same on all of those CE28's. The first link shows a set that's been cleaned very well and has absolutely no brake dust. Also he took some nice shots with proper light to show the bit of sparkle/metallic the bronze color has. The wheels in the last two links are just dirty (never understood why people don't properly clean stuff before posting for sale LOL) and the pictures don't have great lighting.

I think it's just different lighting conditions. You can see how different mine look in these pics - light and dark.

With that said, taosti's wheels do look more gold than even my "light" pic. I don't know how repeatable annodizing is from batch to batch compared to paint, so maybe there is some variation in the annodizing?

Thanks for replies! I like the lighter tone of taosti's wheels.
