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.

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 ...

Our eyes and brain do things on a daily basis that make LSD's effects seem relatively tame. One of the things our brains do is a color balancing activity of their own. No one knows why for certain, but its theorized we do it so that it would be easier to track prey as they dodge in and out of shadows (prey reflect the blue sky while in the shadow, so they ...

Electronics and the human mind are different things. As already mentioned, our eyes adjust the lighting/scene for us. Light, in physics, are wavelengths. In wavelengths are different frequencies. These different frequencies determine the colour. Below is a very simplified example of the relationship between colours and wavelengths: From: ...

Why do we 'correct' this by distorting the values according to the light source?] Because your visual system responds to relative changes in the intensities of different colors, whereas the camera sensor records absolute intensities. If you stand under a sodium streetlight for a while, you get used to that light being "white" even though it's quite a ...

The general answer to what you're wondering about is that there's a big difference between the simple photometric scene recorded by our eyes or a camera, and the results of filtering this raw data through human perception processes. One human perceptual phenomenon that might be closely related to what you're asking about may be this one, whereby even the ...

[Looking into how auto-white balance affects RAW image files]. As to how white balance can affect exposure, check out an additive color wheel and the sliders in Adobe Lightroom. As you adjust "temp" you're shifting across the color wheel yellow-to-blue, with white in the center. Same with "tint" but you're shifting across green-to-magenta, again with white ...
