How many shades of green do you see in the picture above. Would you believe there is only one?


  • Mr. Noticetheobvious

    Duh. If you stare at where the black and yellow lines meet, you will be able to notice that it’s the same shade.

    • ANR

      DUH!!! If you don’t waste too much time staring and just look at the picture, you’ll see they are orange bars – NOT YELLOW!!

  • Meg

  • Caz

    Yeh, cuz the black lines are in between the bottom greens, but if you look at both the greens together you can tell they’re the same, its good though :)

    The black lines, make the green below them seem darker, as if a shadow appears.

  • PerfectPoodle

  • Samijane.

    since when did orange become yellow?

  • chey

    um yah if u compare one line of the bottom green to the top u then can tell that they are the same color ! mny guess is that the black makes the bottom green look darker then the top

  • Tony

    To ;) — Don’t use “color-blind” as a slur. I am partially color-blind & at times it’s hell. Many things in life are color-coded, & I have to ask strangers to help me.

  • Makeymakeyyy

    I see that everyone is ANGRY at the person who just said YELLOW. But, please have some forgiveness of his/her FAILures and forgive…OH WHAT THE HECK! IT’S FUCKING YELLOW FOR HEAVEN SAKE!

    • Andrew J. Coleman

      Watch the language please!!! My four year old cousin looks on this site with me. Now he is asking me what that word means! The F****** means!!

  • Austin

    Its because the black kinda surrounds the green, so it makes the green look darker because our eyes carry over the darkness of the black into the green. Same thing with the ORANGE NOT YELLOW bars only lighter.

  • The Illusionist

    By the way if the post here is waaaaaaayyyyyyy past,well I see how this simple illusion with three colors turned out to be large argument.

  • The Illusionist

    Oh and by the way if you look into other illusion sites, youll see that this picture is moving
