The luminance of a surface results from the combined effect of its reflectance (albedo) and its conditions of illumination. Luminance can be directly observed, but reflectance and illumination can only be derived by perceptual processes. Human observers are good at judging an object's reflectance in spite of large changes in illumination; this skill is known as "lightness constancy." Most research on lightness constancy has used stimuli consisting of grey patches on a single flat plane. The… CONTINUE READING
