Blue and Black?
White and Gold?
Who gives a fuck.
Official discussion here.
the way you perceive the colors in the photo has to do with how your brain correctly, or incorrectly(white and gold) guesses the effect of lighting and shadows have on a subject in the main view. The reason you probably still think it's white and gold is because of image retention. You are too used to the context that you think it is white and gold that it is difficult or near impossible to change your brains viewpoint of it
Holy fuck do you lack some relational part of your brain or something. Yes if you took a colour picker on that image it'd be black-yellow, but if you do see it as blue-black, you should be able to see clearly that the yellowness is from the extra light, the stripes are actually yellow
"If you go to the gold/black area [of the dress photo] and blow the image way up, people who see gold will see that the clusters of pixels are basically reds (pinks) and greens (olives)," McLeod went on. "They merge to give the summated color. If you have red-green deficiency, you’ll see just black."
Take this test, post results, and what colors you think the dress are.
I guarantee everyone who says black and blue are color deficient.
OUT OF ALL THINGS
You are literally retarded. People aren't saying the correct color of the dress, that we know from other photos of the dress that aren't washed out and taken in artificial (yellow) lighting (that is, it's a fucking blue dress with black stripes) because they're color blind. It's because they're doing second level processing in their brains to contextualize what they're seeing. They know that without the yellow light and bad photography that it would be a dark blue and a neutral black. What are you even trying to say right now?
I can sort of understand why people say it's blue, it's white has a bit of a blueish hue to it.
But how the fuck do they see black in this? Am i being rused right now?
There was literally a thread on every board on 4chan when I left for work this afternoon.
Not to mention Facebook, Tumblr, and at least four different threads on the Reddit front page
suprised myself but i see black and blue
Grow a complete cortex, nigger. There is no need for some dumbass, unsourced internet test on anyone's vision. Either you applied the context, like a functional human brain, or you didn't and you're a moron.
>anyone who sees white and gold has a shitty brain which is altering their perception of it.
i dont think you understand how images work. the color in that picture is nowhere near black, its a dirty gold shade.
jesus christ you're an idiot.
you can tell this >>9505242
man is not really wearing a blue shirt, correct? it is white, but when you take the color off paint or some shit obviously it will show up as blue. but, your interpret it (correctly) as being a white shirt. (if you dont you're beyond hopeless, i'm sorry)
so what you did there with the color you posted was fucking pointless. sure, i know it looks to be gold when you extract the color from paint. but look at pic fucking related ya god damn deficient dipshit
>another brain dead shit poster thought he could act smart
obviously it LOOKS to be one way, but seriously if you have half a brain you can determine the dress, in reality, is black and blue.
That's such an ugly colored dress, it hurts my eyes. This makes me want to wish it was actually gold.
how you COMPLETELY missed the point is beyond me
wow, just fucking wow
it doesn't matter what you get when you zoom in 800%. zoom in 800000% and i still won't give a fuck. the dress is blue and black. there are images of it in other contexts where its pretty clear the "white and gold" camp is applying a false correction to the shitty photo.
which one? obviously the far right is dark blue. the middle is where the shit lighting comes in and starts fucking with your perception. but the middle one is still arguably bluer than it is white, and dark enough where you can assume the lighting is giving the black a goldish tint. the far left isnt even worth looking at with all the effects applied to it.
>where its pretty clear the "white and gold" camp is applying a false correction to the shitty photo.
so youre saying those who are seeing the photo as what it shows in terms of actual color content are doing it wrong.
See I have no idea which is the original one, so AT FIRST GLANCE not noticing the lighting I dont see how its possible to say that the dress looks dark blue and black. unless you notice the lighting and really look at it.
all of you are fucking retarded
both pair of colors mustard race:
>blue shadows on a white dress, (light behind dress, backlit)
>light reflected on a blue and black dress
the original dress is black and blue, doesn't matter, you're actually seeing the light of your screen
Because you're not seeing what's actually there. Seeing what's actually there includes the context, which is granted by the clearly oversaturated store in the background, that gives the clues to what the color is in reality and not in a bad photograph. Those colors, in reality, are blue and black. Seeing the raw data of the dress (which is not included in any of the pictures in OP, because ALL THREE of them were edited to be EVEN MORE washed out and autobalanced towards gold/white) is ignoring the raw data of the whole photo, as well as implied information gathered from life experience, and so forth. It's underfunctioning. It's ignoring information to such a degree as to generate a false interpretation.
>not following your favourite porn artists on tumblr so they can explain this wizardy
step up, senpai
That explanation doesn't work because both of the greys in the pic are... the same grey. People are seeing wildly different colors that don't match up. If it were purple/brown and black/blue discrepancies, that would be one thing; but this is blue/black and white/gold -- which one is the diametric opposite.
I think it's just trolling by white/gold persons.
No. I really did see it as white/gold as a thumbnail for a second or so in one of the undoctored version. It's possible, it has to do with context. Given longer than a second to look at it, my brain settled on blue/black and now I can't change that no matter how I try.
This is a troll thread, though.
>I think it's just trolling by white/gold persons.
Yes, countless people in countless places with no relation to each other decided to group up and troll you.
Holy shit, blue blacks are fucking dumb.
I have always seen it as blue and black.
The thing that drives me crazy is that I cannot at all see the white and I don't understand how people can even see it as white. I get how people can see the gold. I can understand that. But there are people that even after showing them its a blue dress can see it as white.
I have seen this picture 100 different ways.
Messed up contrast.
Messed up brightness.
Someone at my work printed it out.
People have blasted this picture to look as white as possible but the god damn dress still looks like a lighter blue to me.
I mean, are there actually people who are not color blind that would look up at this clear sky and be like. "Look at that the sky it's pure white. This is normal in my world."
This is what gets to me now. I now know that I live in a world where half the people are like this. That they cant just look at a close up picture of a dress and even think about how the lighting could effect the colors. They just go through the world assuming that every picture they look at has at least near perfect lighting.
It looks gold and white to me too.
And i'm pretty good at distinguishing colors in the warm spectrum.
I know the dress is actually blue and black, but in that photo, it still looks white/light blue and gold to me.
If I look at the photo long enough, I can see it is overexposed blue and black, only because I now have the knowledge that the dress is blue and black. But without knowing it was blue and black, when I first saw the dress, I thought it was white and gold. And I can't stop seeing it that way.
Slightly brighter yellow lighting that washes out a digital image does turn black into gold, though, you fucking moron. Is this really why you keep spamming your stupid test? You don't even understand which color becomes which color.
>tfw see White and Gold
>tfw you realize you can't see colors properly
>tfw you're now freaking out about how you have probably been poorly matching colors of your outfits this whole time
>tfw you probably look like shit all the time because you're colorblind
>yellow lighting that washes out a digital image does turn black into gold
Just because black is all colors combined together does not mean that you "perceiving" the color black as being "washed out" to gold is more valid than my only being able to distinguish gold. Think about how difficult is to convince someone who isn't colorblind that what they're seeing isn't right because they aren't colorblind as well. That's what this arguments sounds like to me. I hate to promote divisiveness as this board can do a bang up job of that in itself as you've illustrated clearly enough but though i can see the washed out blue tint on what is presumably a white base that fooled me into thinking it was something else reflecting on the dress I do not see ant black, at all. Refracted light, chromatic biases etc etc I don't know why but I'm 100% willing to believe that everyone is seeing what they claim to see and that trolls are in the minority. If someone said they saw demons instead of a dress I wouldn't dispute that. I have no right to assume that they aren't being honest or frank with me since i'm not them. I really don't.
and i'm not the guy who posted the test I just took it
Now if you guys would stop these high school shenanigans on the other hand...
lol moron, if I had problems with my color vision I could never get a perfect score on the test no matter how long I tried, I perceive color better than you so cry more. when I post this perfect test here in a bit you will only be able to cry copious tears while choking on my meat pole
i got a 22 what did u get
>my face when when i realized every color square within a color family had no perceptible gradation intentionally
look here guy
we're all "cucks" so let's help each other out by not mentioning this every second mmkay
oh so you'd never be able to just sample the colour codes and cheat?
cry more tears cuck boy
the fact that you're so desperate to prove yourself to me show's how beta you gold/white faggots are
if anyone asks me what colors i see on the dress i'm just going to say "demons" from now on. since i live in predominantly christian murrica i think it'd be fitting.
If anyone is combative enough to want to fucking convince me it's not demons i will am going to lol until i can't breathe anymore.
only an educated mind would recognise such genius
>tfw surrounded by people with malfunctioning brains that think this dress is white and gold
I was just trying to amuse myself bren
pls don't hurt me feelings
OR MAYBE THE MEDIA IS ORCHESTRATING THIS, while they suppress news of the gov't intervening overseas and burning more muslims alive with drones
THE MAYANS PREDICTED THIS H OLY SHEIT
You are so magnificently dumb. It's actually beautiful, like an explosion of paint. I have never seen stupidity so stubborn, so bizarre, so all-consuming in my entire life. It's not even retardation. You could be smart about things, but you just aren't. You could break through the surface level, but you don't. It's astounding.
With a reinforcing notion that "the brain" thinks independently from who that body part "belongs" to as well as a lack of clarification as to what and how one would be specifically coming to the conclusion as to what color(s) that "the dress" is (rather than the photo/image of how the dress appears in it with the various factors and other images having adjustments made to the original picture itself). A situation epitomizing that the "map is not the territory".
"[...]my fears are like maggots infesting my poor old carcass.."
look at this demon trying to tempt me with his devilish good looks
NOT TODAY SATAN
Cure for those pitiful fools who can't see black and think it's gold.
Imagine that the dress is in bright light, which it is. Now do you see?
I have a daylight chromatic bias then so what?
there is a distinct absence of sun light at night
i do not need to remain awake at night so...
>based eye genetics
>not optimized to perceive daylight
what a pleb, snortsnort.
>lit. erryone in this thread
Why are you people so mad about this shit, if you see it as blue and black, congrats you are an autist, if you see it as white and gold, congrats you are colorblind.
I see neither a complete white nor a complete blue, same thing with black and golden. This reminds me of back in middle school when I'd argue over people if something was orange or brown.
The real illusion here is our perception of time and our place in the cosmos.
>hurr it's black and blue, you guys are colorblind lol
It doesn't fucking matter which color it is, if the picture shows it's white (and that's not even white white) and gold, then you can't blame people for seeing fucking white and gold, period.
The reason people are seeing it differently is the same phenomenon as pic related.
A and B are the same color, but your brain interprets it as them being different colors due to the presence of shadow.
It's how your brain interprets it, nothing to do with colorblindness or rods or cones, just how your brain handles luminosity
The color of the dress varies depending on certain biológical and psychological factors that get resumed to the following:
White and gold: you are happy and have a positive way of thinking con mostró subjects.
Black and blue: you are rather sad and you usually see things in a negative depressive way.
Green and purple you are gay and suck a lot of cock.
>Green and purple you are gay and suck a lot of cock.
nice pseudoscience buddy but i do not suck cock
also it's black and blue
i'm color blind and have some weird shit going inside my occular cavity so i see gold and light blue
it is what it is
all of the images are of the same dress. These fuckwads are really stupid enough to not notice that the lighting on the dress changes making us perceive it as different colors although, it still is the same dress.
the problem is you wanks are always looking at a screen be it phone, computer, tv....etc. Get out of the virtual world and into the real world. Try looking up at the sky (it's that vast blueness above your head)
You realize this is 2015 and not 2004, right?
The point is whether or not you can tell what color the dress actually is. The dress is black and blue. The people saying white and gold don't have the brain power to take into account the lighting and think it really is white and gold.
Are you retarded? If the dress is blue and black then why the fuck would the picture be any different? Just because some people interpret it differently? If this was just another optical illusion I doubt it would've spread so quickly; no, dumbshits are debating the actual fucking color.
the picture is overexposed to hell so it looks white and gold. doesn't matter what color the dress is, it could be a pure black dress with no patterns at all, but in the picture it looks white and gold, not black and blue
The picture is bad, yes, but the blue tints and the larger presence of a dark, almost black shade should be the first thing that is interpreted by anyone's mind. I can see how it can be seen as white and gold, I've "seen" both, but it's still far easier for it to look blue/black instead of white/gold.
Just as a friendly reminder that this "debate" was first started on tumblr and now it has its own sticky on /fa/
this is how bad 4chan has gotten
tumblr has never been a four-letter word on /fa/, remember.
there are still people who use it for its intended purpose of sharing art rather than whatever boogeyman you're afraid of at the moment.
what's the deal with this crimson red and aubergine dress anyway?
