* Close your eyes and face a bright light source like the sun for a minute or two. Then turn away and open your eyes. Everything will appear blue tinted. This occurs because low wavelength red/orange light passes through the skin and blood of your eyelids but high wavelength blue/violet light is absorded. The low wavelength light continues to stimulate the red-color perceiving cone cells or your retina, causing a reduction in their sensitivity, but fails to stimulate your blue-sensitive cone cells, causing them to increase in sensitivity. When you open your eyes your blue sensitive cones are over active and your red sensitive cones are burnt out, so everything looks blue.

* ''Anime/{{K}}'' does this for most of the series. Some have theorized that it signifies the Blue Clan's power and influence - indeed, the color does shift a bit when the Red Clan and Green Clan gain influence. But blue is the default look for most of the series.

* ''LifeOnMars2006'': the 2006 scenes are shot through a bluish filter, to emphasize the dull, soulless environment.
* ''{{Smallville}}'' was particularly fond of doing this in their early seasons to show contrast between Lionel's cold blue office in the urban Metropolis, compared to the golden glow of the Kent's farm home.
