EC 2014: First Look

I got some pictures in email from Harry's phone.
It looks early.

Yes, very early.
This beautiful red backlit sail reminds me that Harry can't see the color red. I ran this photo through the Vischeck simulator to illustrate how it looks to somebody with protanopia like Harry. In his eyes his jacket is not that different from the red sail. The sail is just darker. Bryan's yellow boat and the red boat on the other side are very similar, not a stark contrast as it is for color-sighted people.

But that blue bag on the deck of his boat is the same. So if you want to make something stand out for Harry's field of view, make it blue, not red or yellow.

Cruising along
