The comparison I showed was of both games on maximum settings, at the same resolution and taken to be representative of the graphics in-game. Your screenshots were deliberately low resolution and still did a poor job of making Pripyat look good.

Sorry, I didn't want to say that Stalker looked better visually, but that the choice of screenshots can affect the outcome depending on what the subject is.
Also as a huge Stalker fan you should know that the game is meant to be bland, lifeless & harsh rather than colourful, full of rainbows and bloom.
It's like comparing a unicorn to a snake.
For me - the looks did the job they were meant to do in both games and I wouldn't complain about the visuals in Stalker - they did exactly what they were set out to do and portrayed a more realistic look.
In case you haven't seen the Andrei Tarkovsky film by the same name then they took a lot of visual hints from there. And the film looked like this

Skyrim was a "huge mess" and have "a vision"? Ermmm... okay? Haha? Anxious But that is in stark contrast to most people's experience.

Most people is also the same majority that watch all those big and awful Hollywood productions and praise how fantastic they were, while you nod your head at them in disgust and wish they saw a proper movie for once and stopped financing those awful brainfarts.
Yah, that's not a group I hope that this game is made for, because if you cater for everyone you're going to end up with exactly why I screamed NO! in the first place and while I'm here arguing against it.

So just like the bland Hollywood action movie - it has the visuals, bang and some kind of a story somewhere, but if you go deeper into it you'll notice that the facade is not very thick at all.
