Here’s a Neat Optical Illusion that Teaches You How Light, Shadows & Contrast Affect Color in Images

This one is just for fun but it’s also educational. Follow the instructions in the above image and see how much light, shadows and contrast can affect color in an image.

The key is to cover the middle section with both the white and shaded part completely with your finger(s) to see the top and bottom sections “magically” turn the same shade of gray.

Sort of mind blowing, isn’t it?
