ABSTRACT
The neutral interface reflection (NIR) assumption is a widely ac-
cepted theory in computer vision. According to the NIR the color of
specularities of dielectric materials is the color of the incident illumi-
nation and the influence of the Fresnel reflectance is neglected. We
show, that there is a material- and geometry-dependent shift between
the color of the specularity and the color of the incident light due to
the Fresnel effect which for human skin can be up to approximately
5.8%. As the NIR concept is often the core idea of specularity-based
