What Colour Are Tennis Balls?

Post by noleisthebest on Thu Mar 22, 2018 12:06 am

Fed thinks they are yellow, I think they are green.

What do you think?

The above picture is more yellow than green - my monitor is calibrated.

Green.

They are yellowish green (rather than greenish yellow).

They are yellow for heaven's sake.  Anyway - the labeling of colours is a construct, just like gender eh bb?

To me, there is enough green in the shade that it can never be seen as yellow.

Yellow is my co-favourite colour with red, so I know my yellows. Big Grin

I'd say yellow but colour is a funny thing; it technically doesn't exist, it's the brains interpretation of light of different wavelengths. There are fascinating examples of how we see the same "colour" as completely different colours depending on what surrounds it or whether we have fatigued our light receptors.

Yes, except that smileys and tennis balls are a different colour!

Yes, that’s how I’d describe them.
