Are you sure you want to delete this?

The brain is always adjusting to what the eye sees. The blue of a dusk may not 'appear' blue when you are standing outside and there is no other color to reference it but it could also appear very blue if you are looking out from a room lit by firelight. How you translate that in a film is a personal choice and also one that can depend on context. You may not want the colors that are available to you in 'reality' or you may want to exaggerate them. That is part of a cinematographer's palette. As you say, reality is subjective and color very much so. I have no idea what color you are actually seeing. I mean, what is blue? A wavelength. But how is your brain interpreting that?
