In traditional film, the color timing is part of the photographic
reproduction process to correct color appearance and give consistency
(problems range from using different film stock to exposure errors,
etc.). Now days it's not a chemical process anymore (it used to
literally be done in big chemical baths) but a digital process and
Jackson used it *extensively*.
I found the films oppressively "blue" - I don't know if that makes any
sense to anybody else, but even Rivendell went blue (about the only
thing that didn't go blue in the first film was Hobbiton itself). It
didn't seem quite so egregious in the last two films, possibly because
the tone is darker, overall - but he just sucked all the yellow and a
lot of the red out of the movie... *whimper*
