Representation of the colors each type of cone cell is most responsive to. Note that these colors do not correspond to Red, Green and Blue.
The CIE 1931 color space chromaticity diagram. The outer curved boundary is the spectral (or monochromatic) locus, with wavelengths shown in nanometers. Note that the colors depicted depend on the color space of the device on which you are viewing the image, and therefore may not be a strictly accurate representation of the color at a particular position, and especially not for monochromatic colors.
On the other hand, my Grandmother thought green was unlucky and wouldn't wear it (there may have been political overtones to that too)
It is important to remember that 'wavelength' is not 'colour'. Colour is all in your head.No wonder we all have different ideas about colour matching; it's such a complicated business.
Believe me, if you are a member of the "wee free" church, the dislike of green is nothing to do with arsenic and a lot to do with associations with the Catholic church.
I had a leaf poke me in the eye...it was green and was not good for my eye !!I think ewe should get your dad on here to explain himself.But remeber...he's your daddy and he is the best daddy in the whole world !!
It is also that everybody has slightly different variations of cone sensitivity, with slightly different peek wavelengths for the different cones.
QuoteIt is also that everybody has slightly different variations of cone sensitivity, with slightly different peek wavelengths for the different cones.And I've found that my eyes have a different sensitivity to blue light. I can change the colour that blue-grey objects appear by looking at them through just one eye at a time.
What do you you get when you view a blue movie through rose tinted spectacles, I wonder?
Blue screens and green screens are used for movies so you can create a different background without being there really
