In nature, colors average 4 parts black to 1 part white.There is one thing more painful than learning from mistakes (our own or somebody else's):  Not learning from them. - Barbara Johnson

Middle Gray Isn't

Our eyes are sensitive to different colors and to gray in different degrees.

Gray

It turns out that the color we usually think of as gray is not half way between black and white. It is actually far darker than you would guess. This gray is actually 4 parts black and only 1 part white.

This corresponds with some research done by Jones and Condit at Kodak in 1941 which found that the average scene in nature is about 4 parts black to 1 part white.
