It looks gold and white to me. I have checked the image on a dozen different monitors now, in multiple web browsers. Looks the same gold and white on all of them.

Thats because the picture is white and gold. The auto white balance removed all the blue from the image.
But if you can trick your brain's auto white balance you can actually see it in the correct colors.



slightly less ham fisted attempt for brain

Yeah I saw this blue and black on facebook, went to Gizmodo and read the article where the image I saw was white and gold... which then swapped to blue and black before my eyes (over a few seconds of looking at the dress) and I have not been able to see white and gold since.

the picture is not white and gold. If anythign it's periwinkle and olive if you base it solely on the RGB values.

it has nothing to do with white balance.

Youre right. Its not white balance, its exposure.

It always starts out as white and gold for me and then if I stare at it for a few minutes it will turn blue and black and then I won't be able to see the white and gold again unless I don't see the picture for a few hours.

It's white and gold for me.

Interesting youtube videos explaining all this stuff. "Different people are ... different." Who knew?
