[Tig] Do you Do It in the dark?

> what you missed is that there is 'enough' D6500 light around and in the
room at low level to give a _constant_ and_unchanging_ visual reference.
Ian, my post wasn't about criticizing your approach at all (just in case it
could be misconstrued that way).
Yes, understood, the projector will/can paint 6500K light on other walls,
etc. Please note that I have seen rooms that are absolute black holes. Not
a good thing at all.
The question is one of correlating this to other viewing environments. No
standard seems to exist. What happens when someone wants to
evaluate/comment/guide your grade from 3000 miles away? What do you tell
them to do? How do we correlate that viewing environments?
One random thought I had was that it might be nice to have a good size
(about 5%~10% of screen height?) gray border around the screen. Something
like an 18% neutral area rather than blackness. Hard to say how this would
function as I have no basis from which to say that it would be of any
benefit. I've been meaning to bounce this off a couple of the guys at the
Munsell Color Science Lab for a while. They can take these ideas and run
tests using hundreds of unsuspecting students as subjects. Just about the
only way to know.
