  • Flower Market at Victoria Park, Hong Kong

    Moth Orchids radiated by cool and warm lights at a Flower Market in Hong Kong. It was interesting that hawker used fixtures of different colour temperature to light up the same flowers in the same shop. Cooler lights seemed to show the true colour of Moth Orchids, but it seemed customers preferred the warmer colour. Is this a Hero or a Villain to you?

    I am wondering if the owner is having lighting experiment in this shop. This has no meaning. Chromatic adaptation does not work at all for the eyes of customers when there are two different light sources in the visual field. For me, it is a villain.
