Paper Abstract

We present a spatial frequency analysis of the luminance and chrominance images derived from 20 scenes representative of natural terrain. Our results weakly support the claim that the human visual system has access to spatial frequencies of luminance and chrominance in relative proportion to their occurrence in natural scenes. The weak effect that we found may be due to the limited gamut of colors present in the scenes.
