Many have pursued an understanding of factors that affect color perception. One such factor is the viewing condition under which an observation occurs. For example, the appearance of a color patch is altered by the color and luminance of the area surrounding it. Even if this perception is subconscious, it still influences the viewer's judgments. Thus, one expects that the perception of a complex scene, a photograph, will also be changed by a colored surround. This paper investigates such an effect, thereby increasing the understanding of color perception.
