Unhappy Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

I have always had many explanations about this colour so I checked Wikipedia ... this is what I got :
Quote:
There is some difficulty in defining the eye color "hazel" as it is sometimes considered to be synonymous with brown and other times with green.[32][19][25][27][30][33] They have been described as light brown or yellowish brown,[34] or as a lighter shade of brown.[35] Hazel eyes have also been described as being equivalent to blue/grey.[36]
I am among those who thought that hazel stood for brown, but while viewing your original photo, the colours were too light and made me think I might be wrong. So I think I will consider the "hazel" you mention as "hazel green" or "hazel grey" unless you could give us a colour within the possible hazels

I know about understanding the instructions being an important factor, but I think there is no clear way to understand it in this case ?

Sorry, TPaul I know you are busy, but had to ask

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

Marthig,

There is no single "Right" color for hazel eyes. Hazel eyes are multi-toned and there is quite a bit of natural variation. I have hazel eyes as do my daughters. Mine are gold/green/brown, one daughter is blue-grey/brown, another gold/green. The color balance can vary with lighting as the iris opens or closes.

Hazel gives you room for interpretation. I think the key is to go for multiple hues within the hazel natural range and not go for a monotone look as in solid eye colors such as brown.

I was always under the impression that 'Hazel' eyes were brown with green flecks - guess you learn something new every day

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

It's good to see this discussion about Hazel eye color. I've been going back and forth among brown/yellow, brown/green and blue-gray/yellow.

Thanks Bob, Marthig and Nancy for your input. It helps to know that others have the same questions.

Lorraine

Re: January 07 Contest Discussion

using google's 'define' feature, the only reference i came up with on hazel eyes was this:

of a light brown or yellowish brown color
