Solved the mystery of the famous wedding dresses that people on the Internet seen in different colors. It is reported RIA Novosti citing a study by American scientists. They interviewed 13 thousand people online. It turned out that people saw the dress in different color due to the play of light and shadow, and also due to personal characteristics and living habits.
In the spring of 2015 thousands of people were arguing about what color the dress is gold or blue. In the end it turned out that 70% of respondents see it white-gold, 30% blue-black. Later it was discovered that there is a group of people who dress seems brown.
“Exposition of the original was too badly, which it is not clear where the source of illumination. For this reason, we consciously and subconsciously have to make assumptions about how it lit dress that affects what color we see in the picture,” said Pascal Valles from new York University.
According to Vallese, important of all, where the light source and how it illuminates objects in the photo or the canvas. In addition, it turned out that the “larks”, used to live in bright sunshine and see the bright shade, considered the gold dress, but the owls are black and blue.
These results emphasize the subjectivity of human perception of reality, concluded the scientist.
