Could the picture below have been taken during the day in golden sunshine? Was it taken in ambient night lighting? Could my camera have taken liberties with the coloration of this scene? I did not make any adjustments before or after I snapped the shutter, and yet the time of day is ambiguous.
I actually took this photo at night under the illumination of a yellow-tinted street light. I cannot independently recall the actual color cast at the scene and compare it with today’s photo. But when I took the picture, it felt like night time. (Being dark all around me may have had something to do with it, but how is the viewer of this photo to know that?)
