Quick poll: How many colors do you see? (exclude white & black)

I’m thinking of submitting this rather lazy but pretty shot to +Peter From‘s Three Colors event over on the Google+, but I’m wonder if there are really more than three colors here.

Is a gradient from red to yellow two colors, three colors, or innumerable colors?

I don’t really know. Maybe you have an idea?

Oh! And I’m trying out a new (old) lens: Grandad’s Cosina-made Vivitar 50mm f/1.8. I’ve yet to put it to any serious tests, but I like some of the qualities it presents, though very many lenses render wholly out-of-focus pictures quite nicely.

D7000. Vivitar 50mm f/1.8 (Cosina-made, probably from 1975). ISO400, f/1.8, 1/400th (APmode), -1EV. About 3 minutes of slider play in Aperture to help bring out the n colors.
