The Color Issue

I'm pretty disappointed with the Martha Stewart Living Color Issue. It's such a great idea, but the colors aren't specatcular, and I feel like they could have done much more with the entire issue, rather than just a few articles. Probably the most beautiful colors were in these photographs of ravioli made with beets, and this summer pudding, but overall there was very little color saturation, and I feel like the spread of pale pink home decor was a waste of paper. Also, there was an article on white foods that was very disappointing. Does anyone remember the issue that had the gorgeous pastel dishes that were over-exposed to make them almost disappear into the page? Those were beautiful! But this issue pales in comparison. Martha, really, couldn't you have come up with something more bold?
