I don't see any banana in the photo. With (1) a close crop so no expanse to judge color differences against, ans (2) no object with an overwhelming known color to calebrate against (the proverbial banana), how can you color-correct in your perception? Perhaps some people see something in the photo that is well known to them. In fact, I'm supposing that ...

The closest I can get to explaining what happened is to look at how a projector used for a presentation system handles black in projected images. These projectors typically work by throwing light onto a white screen. Colors like red, blue, green, and everything in between are handled by filtering the light to project the desired color. To get black, ...

Probably nothing. A large proportion of people wasting their time on this nonsense see black and blue. So I see no reason to assume that your ability to see the black and blue is down to skills, talent or training. There is no statistical evidence to suggest that your time as a photographer has anything to do with it. I don't see why a background of taking ...

The Spyder 3 Elite has a built in ambient light sensor which will measure the colour and can tell you what white point to use, you can then set your screen to match that and then run the calibration process. The manual should explain how to use/enable that feature since you've paid for it.

Photographers are probably better trained to see colors. In this documentary: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xl7cgq_horizon-do-you-see-what-i-see-part-2-4_shortfilms a completely colorblind photographer who can only see black and white explains how she can still perceive colors. Also as pointed out in part 3: ...

The image has an obvious yellow colour cast. If i wanted to correct it, i'd put the eyedropper on the white flecks on the fabric in the lower left, which results in a blue/black dress. If we wanted to pull the blue tinge to a shade of white, we'd have to increase the yellow, and the image would look completely unnatural and clipped. So, no, there is no ...

Viewing these three images side by side from this article makes it fairly obvious what is going on with the viral photo: Choices about exposure and white balance determine how colors in a photo are perceived. Even black objects can be so overexposed as to over-saturate all three channels (RGB) and make black appear to be white. Amplifying the three color ...

If you want your monitor to show how the colors will appear in a properly calibrated print, then you need to set the white point to D50 (full spectrum centered at 5,000K) and view the monitor in a glare free environment with D50 lighting at around 2,000 lux. If the lighting environment in which you are viewing the monitor is different than D50, you should ...

To me the image appears white with a bluish tint (perhaps even a light baby blue) and the gold. or brown. It just won't read as black no matter how hard I try to convince myself. I think its the black object behind it that makes it never go there for me. I can't reconcile the deeper blue of the actual dress with the slight blue cast in the image. It reads ...

As a photographer, I understand both what I see (blue) and the likelihood that others don't "see" exactly what I see, for any number of reasons -- especially if you allow for different photos of the same subject taken under different lighting conditions and/or different white balance settings. If anything, I have a (completely unsubstantiated) belief that ...

Do I see the ambiguity? I can understand it, having been exposed to many images where white objects are rendered with a blue cast, just like everyone else... but I can't honestly say that I can see the blue of the dress as being caused by that, even if I try. There are just too many other visual cues in the image that contradict that impression, I guess. ...

My monitor is calibrated (less than a month ago). I see the white/gold dress, but the highlights on the white piping have a blue tinge to me. However I have seen pics of the (supposedly) original dress, and it is a deep blue and black. To me, the only way I can reconcile this pic, and the pic of the actual dress is that if this pic was taken with a really ...

I see the colors as blue-gray with a bit of magenta and a sort of khaki. If I should guess what is the original color of the dress, my answer would be that it is more likely gold-(off)white than black-blue due to the presence of darker color at the bottom left and some other clues. Is it that my years of experience with digital photography and ...

I will explain a little further theese questions: Is the green I see the same as the green you see? Eyes see things in diferent ways, it is not a mechanical or universal process. Our eyes recalibrate depending on lighting conditions. The white balance process ocurs in our retina all the time. If you want a live experiment on how the retina change this ...
