The creation of the gray-scale representation of the image is dependent on the original color of the image before it is calculated from a particular height. Each pixel undergoes the process and while darker colors will feature taller layer heights that allow for a minimal amount of light to shine through, lighter hues have less material that allows for more light to shine through.
