Default This Goddamn Dress

So, some of you may have seen this making the rounds on the internet. There is witchcraft afoot here.



When you first see this dress, you're going to see a white and gold dress. And you'll say, "But Horus," what else could it be?

Well, come look at the damned thing 12 hours later and tell me it's still white and gold.

People are arguing all over the internet about it and it's kind of insane. It's actually black and blue, but there's something about the exact colors that make your eye initially see the colors as negative from what they actually are.

How's that for some voodoo?

It's dove egg blue and and black. My buddy showed me this yesterday, and it's never been anything but those colors. Your eyes are just FUBAR, brosef.

5 minutes later and the colour is already beginning to darken into what I assume is the black and blue. Weird optical illusion.

to the internet!

The dress has always been blue and black to me, noticed that the girlfriend saw gold and yellow as well. Out of curiosity to those whose minds were played with by the colour contrast of this picture: do you currently wear glasses or contacts, or have you had corrective eye surgery in the past?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

You see gold? That's black.

EDIT: Or gold. But maybe black. Or gold. Or brown?

My photoshop says it's a very light blue and a dark(ish) brown/orange (gold).

Numbers don't lie, For example, (taken from an unshadowed patch):
Blue: H227 S27 B77, R143 G155 B197
Gold/Black: H46 S48 B46, R118 G105, B61

My assumption would be the trick comes from the high bloom in the background from what I can assume is the sun.

But that's just my random guess.
