    1.) Visibility
    2.) Naturalism
    3.) Composition
    4.) Mood

    10) Red Green and Blue

    Though some will reason that they are just Red and Blue, or at least my dad has told me that. He works at an electrical wholesale store (think the light blubs in the ceilings of stores, not theatre stuff). I think it was Phillips looking into that, but personally I don't put much stock in that. There are red, green, and blue pixels on my computer screen not just red and blue.

    15) foot-lamberts --> candles per square foot

    what that really means is how much light is reflected off a surface and hits your eye...
