It’s Your Brain on the Dress: What Seeing Is Believing, and Why We See Things That Aren’t There

 

Why do some see blue and black on the dress?

To align with their preconception that the photo was taken in warm, artificial light, viewers who saw the dress as blue and black removed the longer wavelengths which were red in color.

This hypothesis is supported by the fact that when people were asked to rate how warm or cool they thought the lighting was, those who saw blue and black on the dress rated it as warmer than those who saw white and gold.

The reason why some see an image with a “blue” color cast while others claim to always have seen “white”, may be partially explained by what colors our brains assume would best represent objects under different light sources. For example, in daylight scenes, where you expect there to be shadows, your brain will automatically compensate for this shadow bias by adding more reds into its representation of any object having green just like it does when compensating for overly yellow images taken indoors under inland bulbs. However, if one has already decided that the scene was lit by a warm light source such as an incandescent bulb, whose color spectrum has more red than blue and green components, then it will be easier for them to explain what they see.
