gold & white in a poor quality photo (light, setting etc?)

Even though the photo is bright in front of the dress, where is the back light coming from?

Sorta looks purple too (light)

it's a thing because the dress is blue and black and your feeble mind thinks it's white and gold like a n00b.

it also probably thinks A and B square are different colors:

My wife thinks it is white and gold as well. It is clearly black and blue.
We are getting a divorce.

The photo is a bit over exposed.

The black is lit at the top by a yellow incandescent bulb. The photo was taken with daylight white balance.

The blue is blue.

I cannot brain how people come up with gold and white.

Original picture looks white/gold on my shitty uncalibrated work PC.

Blue/black on phone and Galaxy Tab Pro.

I'm going blue/black.

It really is ugly.

I woke up this morning and looked again, and I'll be damned if it doesn't look blue and black now.

I hate the Internet. Or my eyesight. You pick.

5 seconds in photoshop



Primary blue photofilter R:0, G:0, B:255, without preserving luminosity, and then fixing exposure from there with curves.

What is trippy is when I look at my pic and then look at Revlimiter's or the original it slowly transitions back to white/gold.
