    Boticelli, Rafaël and other folks possessed the knowing how to do it. They weren't pulling it out of empty air...
    Yes. They understood perfectly well how to use colour.
    So if you show me how to use colour, i don't have to study physics books to know what colour is?

    Yes, Tim, photons can have colour.
    It's that correlation between their energy and how colour sensitive thingies treat them again.

    This is something I was deliberating over when I was setting up my tri-colour LED light source.

    I was trying to work out if the light output when I use the red and green LEDs is actually yellow or if it is still red and green (separately) but our eyes perceive them as a single yellow source.

    We can play this realist vs idealist game all day, and it doesn't make one iota of a difference.

    There is a correlation between our perception of colour and wavelengths of light.
    Just as there is between that hammer landing on your thumb and the pain your mind produces.
    Hmmm...

    Q.G. posting about pain.

    Oh, so the color of a photon depends on the detector sensing it?

    Otherwise they just have an energy/wavelength/frequency, depending on how you want to think about it.

    That's a perfect illustration. Thanks!

    People are talking about emulsions as if they are our eyes.

    The emulsion is exposed to red and green light. Not yellow.
    So if it is sensitive to either red or green, or both, but not to yellow, it will be fogged when you use your 'safe' light. No matter what a tri-colour theory would suggest yellow is.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Go away a few minutes and see what happens?

    Actually, yellow in film capture consists of 2 photons with a Green energy level and a Red energy level, or one photon with an intermediate energy level between Red and Green captured in 2 layers. No photons with the Blue energy level are allowed. They are filtered out.

    The same is pretty much true with the eye and in nature.

    Who said that?

    But yes, all sensors also sense themselves. They also determine the quality of the 'sensee' thyat is to be sensed by the sensor.
    What do you want to make of it, i wonder.

    That's 'anything goes' talk.
    What's energy then, apart from whatever you want it to be?

    Since when do photons have a wavelength or frequency?
    But ignoring that, what is wavelength, frequency, apart from whatever you want it to be?

    You could go down that road, and not be done talking for many years.
    You could also assume some relation between observation and the observed.
