With no concrete areas of equal toning, the eye is not directed

analyse colour may/will not work as our colour perception depends on its
So all the advice on setting neutral points in an image and making
sure that an object (greenery, sky etc.) is the correct Lab/RGB value,
must be taken with a pinch of salt, IF one then thinks the colours look
odd! I have seen this effect on the internal walls of churches,
which sometimes look too green (I obviously have a problem with that
In the opposite diagram the two squares have equal tone values, but
we perceive them different. Therefore the tone framework on both
large and small scale will greatly influence our perception of the
image. By the way, it does not matter that the colour shown
opposite is grey!

easily appear "advancing" or "arousing" if they are
lighter and/or more intense than the warm colours around them; the white
disk appears "closer" than the black one.
How on earth can one measure/analyse these phenomena?
With all these implications, should I just give up now?!
