It changes when I scroll up and down. If I can only see the top half of the dress, it’s white, with gold trim. When I scroll so that the top half is hidden, and it’s only visible from the waist down, it’s blue with brown trim. If I can see the entire dress at the same time, it’s white and gold. I guess it’s a mind trick/lighting thing.
If someone wanted to argue that the ‘white’ wasn’t really white, but rather a pale steel blue, I could accept that (though I don’t see it that way),but there is no way that I can see my ‘gold’ being the same as some people’s ‘black’.
Apparently,since roughly 1/4 of people see it that way, it’s not just a matter of “you people have no sense of color”…there’s obviously something going on here…but it’s weird.
I opened that link, which shows a number of different versions of the same photograph, digitally manipulated to show how different levels of lighting make the colors appear differently. That’s fine; I understand that, and it doesn’t bother me in the least./ So after reading that page, I thought I’d bring up the original post (which I still had open in another browser tab) and put it side-by-side with the edited version to compare the two.
AND NOW I SEE THE ORIGINAL PICTURE AS BEING BLUE AND BLACK!!!
It’s the same web page I was looking at 5 minutes before. I didn’t close and reopen it; I didn’t refresh it. It was the same pixels, the same its of data, just sitting there on my computer screen waiting for me to look at them. And now THEY HAVE CHANGED COLOR.
