Cataracts can cause things to look more yellow or orange than they appear to "normal" folks. I'm starting to get mild cataracts (age catches up with you) and I can definitely tell a color difference with my more affected eye. It is most noticeable to me when I'm looking at something white or cream colored in low light, but I can even see it on this computer screen if I think about it.
You know perfectly well that I never claim to be "right"--at best my claim is that I'm "not quite right"--so normal? Who knows. And the opthamologist tells me that I have cataracts in both eyes (worse in the right than the left) but it really doesn't seem to much affect my vision so far.
Age already caught up with me--and the color and shading difference on this computer predates the cataracts.
I'm at the library now. I guess I should go look at the pictures again and see if it's my vision (or cataracts) or just my computer.
PS I went back and looked and I still like the black and white shot better and think it's sharper but I don't see any color changes yet on the color picture (no yellowing or oranging). So I think it is the computer and not my undeveloped cataracts.
