What color is the right sleeping bag?




Please respond.
I beg of thee.
It's not in 3D.
I know I can see.
Don't just let it be.



Feel free to respond in words also... but please vote.

Thanks.

Why the limited amount of colors to choose from? Most of my sleeping bags are red, blue or green (though I do have an orange one).

The idea is to identify the color of the sleeping bag in the photo on the right in the poll. Basic color names are good enough.

Thank you for the explanation. When he wrote "right" I thought he meant as the "correct" color to have, not that he was asking what is the color of the sleeping back "on the right".

In that case, orange. Tennessee (as in Tennessee Vols) orange to be exact.

No. Nothing to do with real voting. This is an actual dispute over the color of the bag.

It looks more orange than yellow to me. The one on the left almost looks watermelon color.

Hi Parklover!!

U are the second person this morning to say watermelon for the left bag!!! (First was private text message).

I will give this poll more time and then explain. It's really not a joke. I would like honest answers.

I was thinking goldenrod, but I checked against a color table and the closest I can come up with is "saffron".

The one on the right is definitely orange. (In fact both bags are a shade of orange.)

When in doubt, always refer to Crayola: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Crayola_crayon_colors wink

(Note: the one on the left is closest to Crayola's sunset orange.

Pure orange, in hex color, is #FF8000. Pure yellow is #FFFF00.

Poking around with Gimp's color-picker, I get codes like: #FFB06E (in the brightest spot), #EF8D42, and in more shaded areas BE6221 and #BC641D.

This is, by and large, orange.

Yup.

Back in the day of film photography, I was taught the "color" zone system (not to be confused with Adam Ansel's zone system for B&W photography). The color zone system was very useful for getting the correct exposure while shooting slides.

One leaned that the difference between Yellow and Orange was basically that Orange was Yellow underexposed by a full stop. It was a very easy way to turn shimmering yellow Aspen leaves into shimmering orange Aspen leaves. wink

No, not exactly. The B&W zone system that Ansel used included adjustments not just to the exposure of the negative, but to the exposure of the print in the darkroom.

The zone system used for color slide photography is a lot simpler and is about using a spot meter on a known color value and manually adjusting the exposure of the shot accordingly. It's something I learned first from Galen Rowell, but it was first developed and taught by Neil Chaput de Saintonge, the founder of the Rocky Mountain School of Photography (and was taught by many of the school's instructors through the years.)

That's what the Zone System is all about; but can also include adjusting the exposure curve during development. Works for color just as well. If you don't think so, you don't understand the concepts.

There is an infinite variety of "color" between "Orange" and "Yellow", as wavelengths. The question is...to which is it closer? The RGB codes do show that the bag is on the "yellow" side of orange, but they also show orange being dominant.

U and others were awesome..!!!

U were clear and used a more objective method as is my preference!

I also loved chicagocwright's clear and concise "red on left, orange on right."

I'd call it pumpkin. A yellowy orange or orangish yellow.

If JKW rubbed her Cheeto covered fingers on it the bag would appear to look yellow but it Basilbop blew his nose on it the bag would appear orange.

OMG!

You wouldn't budge until I stood next to that sign! Grrrr....

And the bag is ORANGE, NOT YELLOW!

The outside of the bag is charcoal, it's so faded. Sure, it may have been a dark green when it was new, but now... The inside shows the green better, but...

All, I had a yellow jacket with me... And that sleeping bag is obviously orange, as in navel orange orange. And Chick-on keeps saying it's yellow... Sigh....

And I won't even go into display discrepancies which may have led some of you to say yellow. Sigh, again...
avatar Re: What color is your sleeping bag?
March 02, 2016 08:43AM
If the choices are orange and yellow then the bag is definitely orange. Where did the "it's yellow" come from?? I have the same bag and it's orange. Chick-ons are color blind you know. I think all the wearing of the yellow cheese-head thing did something to the rods and cones.
