As someone originally from Buffalo, NY, which shares approximately
the same weather as Rochester (but with more snow), this grim
tale brightened my day.

Thanks!

>It shouldn't.  The concept of the 18% gray content is based
upon an
>"average daylight scene".

The original 18% gray card came from Kodak. Legend has it that
when
they were developing the first "electric eye" camera (i.e, buil
-in
exposure meter), they put a bunch of well exposed and printed
pictures into a shredder to determine the "average" tonality.
Anyone
who has spent time in Rochester, where proximity to the Great
Lakes
reduces the number of sunny days drastically, will recognize
that 18%
gray accurately represents how Rochester both looks and feels.

The other side of the gray card is white, because that is how
Rochester looks the other six months of the year.
