With those they turn white and black. With the translucent they turn white and a slight gray.
Cloudy days seem to have the same effect.
I don't think that happens so much with the blue color scheme (which is the darkest color). Maybe the orange and green are brighter and more susceptible to this? This could answer the question posed long ago in this thread about "which is the best color" aside from personal preference.
