During the course of Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters the town of Augsburg is repeatedly depicted in a rather rural style, with half-timbered clay houses and dirt streets, as seen on this screenshot from Mina's trial at the beginning:
Yet at the end (and only there), when Hansel and Gretel get their pay for returning the children, it shows a much higher developed part of the town, with large stone buildings and cobblestone streets, as seen here:
Is there any information if this change of depicting the town at the end was done on purpose? And if yes, what is the meaning of this (was it maybe just to emphasize the effect of the happy ending)?
(Of course it could also be that there wasn't much more to it and it was just a natural consequence of them being at a different part of town, but the difference to the previous depictions of the town struck me as pretty significant.)
