    Yeah. I'm gonna have to ask for your man-card.

    It's being revoked for a year. You can re-apply as soon as February 27, 2016.

    Fin D has this same dress he likes to wear when we go down to the waterfront for date nights. It's definitely blue and black. Brings out his eyes.

    I don't see how anyone thinks its anything other than black and blue. When I first saw something about it, I thought it was a debate between blue and a shade of purple, since its kind of borderline there. But white? Gold? What are people seeing that I'm missing?

    ^^basically people see it as such due to what their brains assume about the colors. So, yes people are actually seeing it as gold and white.

    I see 33, so I count (just) as tetrachromat I guess. I found this amusing:

    I never, ever, wear yellow, lol. So they pegged me.

    The dress is black and blue.

    Clashing color temperatures and overexposure through the camera lens created the debate.

    Using the color eye dropper in Photoshop does not prove anything.

    The issue is that the photo(s) does not represent what the dress actually looks like and the question is misleading.

    In real life the dress is blue & black. In the photo illustrating the over exposure, the colors are white & gold.

    So, is the actual dress as it exists in real life black & blue or white & gold? B&B
    So, is the actual dress as it exists in the photo black & blue or white & gold? W&G

    I see the white and gold. It appears to me that the white looks light blue in areas. I don't see how anybody sees black.

    I'd imagine it would be washed out to the point you wouldn't see much color.

    It is the light and how the brain works with it.

    I have seen the same picture of that dress look both blue and black, as well as white and gold. There are plenty of scientific explanations on the web. Basically it is one of those optical illusions.

    this. It's due to an evolutionary shortcut our brains take.

    How we interpret the image sure... But I'm explaining how the image turned out the way it did thus creating the illusion. It isn't some magic dress...

    It is the shadow that covers the dress.

    Why is the surrounding area so overexposed.?

    Because the dress was in focus.

    it was most likely a digital camera, and since the dress was in the dark, it would cause the surrounding area to overexpose.

    Way to ignore the point. I know I'm right so whatever. I work with cameras on at a professional level every single day. I know how they see things compared to our eyes. I'm done talking about it though.

    the point is this occurs due to the way the human brain processes visual images. And I wouldn't be *****ing about someone ignoring the point given you implied everyone was ooing and awwing over this as being magic.

    This was weird.

    When I first saw this someone had shared it on my facebook, I looked at the picture and went it's white and gold... I don't get it. Then I read through some comments on the post disputing it's color, so then I looked at the pic again, and now all I see is blue/black. I can't for the life of me even figure out in my mind how I saw it as anything different originally, and why I see it differently now. I get the whole thing... I just find it weird that I originally saw it as white and gold, read other peoples comments, looked again and boom... black and blue all the way and it has been forever. :lol: Stupid lighting/color/camera/internet/facebook crap. :tantrum:

    my wife had the same thing happen to her (switching colors). I told her that I only saw white and gold because I was higher on the evolutionary ladder than she was and therefore wasn't fooled like everyone else.
