I have tried so hard to see the two different sets of colors that people claim to see, but I can ONLY see blue and black. I understand that others see white and gold, but I just can't! I was so frustrated because I showed it to my sister and she thought I was joking when I told her the dress was blue!
From blue and black dresses to turbine blades, here's the science of 'fake fake' photographs. A new study reveals the science behind a 'trick of the light' that made high-profile photographs of a major piece of public art appear 'faked' despite the pictures being entirely genuine. Vision science researchers found images of the 75-meter long wind turbine appeared super-imposed because of a visual illusion caused by light reflections playing on preconceived notions about how objects are lit in natural settings, altering the object's shape to the human eye.

I think we have talked about the color of the dress for so long that many people are getting tired of it. To know that a trick of the light can cause people to see such things so differently can make it interesting. Everyone sees things differently and that will always be a given.
It didn't like it was super imposed to me. All you have to do is look at the people down below it and I think you'd realize this is supposed to be there.
Which piece resembles your color perception for #theDress image? A novel algorithm to simulate the color appearance of objects under chromatic illuminants has been proposed. "#theDress image" refers to a photo that went viral on the Internet in February 2015, when viewers disagreed over the colors seen in the dress. The discussion revealed differences in human color perception and prompted studies in vision science. Source 6k.
