LOL I first thought it was just some stupid blog post, then started googling and realized some do see it as white and gold. *amaze* What weird creatures we, humans, are. Maybe even weirder than orchids :-D

When people see it as blue do you see it as dark blue or light blue?

It's definitely not dark blue to me, neither is light blue though, more like some kind of dirty greyish-bluish shade. Black is not really black either, more like greyish-black. But if I have to choose between labeling it "white/gold" or "blue/black", then it's certainly the latter.
I might even be able to persuade my eyes to perceive some bits of it as goldish (in the lightest photoshopped pic), but I can't see any white, not even having read all that stuff explaining what and why and so on.
I thought it was some kind of prank pic, you know, like pointing at red and saying it's green, just to see people's reaction, it's just way too weird.

For me this was clearly White and gold but for most of my friends, they found it black and blue. Astonishing but true. It's because different people eyes see the image in different lighting which makes the difference.
