The Blue-Black/Gold-White Dress

I was still wondering how much my eyes or brain are deceiving me when looking at The Dress. So, here’s a breakdown of the two main sections from http://www.coolphptools.com/color_extract.

I spent more time on the section that some people see as gold (or, to put it more colorfully, as “shit gold”) because that seems less clear-cut to me than the blue section.
Even if we’re generous and translate “very dark grayish red” as “gold,” we come up with 71% of the “gold” sections that contain only black and 28% that are sort of gold.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to sharing more on this important topic in roughly another 8 months.
