I also have the code in C++. You should use the cvtColor function to convert from BGR to HSV. Then split the channels into separate arrays using the split function. Then loop through the H image, and if H > 90 and H < 130, then draw white on a black image. You'll get blue highlighted.

image description

import cv2
import numpy

frame = cv2.imread('blue.jpg')

if frame is None:
    print('Error loading image')

hsv = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2HSV)

hsv_channels = cv2.split(hsv)

rows = frame.shape[0]
cols = frame.shape[1]

for i in range(0, rows):
    for j in range(0, cols):
        h = hsv_channels[0][i][j]

        if h > 90 and h < 130:
            hsv_channels[2][i][j] = 255
            hsv_channels[2][i][j] = 0

cv2.imshow("show", hsv_channels[0])
cv2.imshow("show2", hsv_channels[2])

You'll have difficulty getting the whitecaps to be detected because purely white pixels are counted as red for hue by default... same with those white boats.

import cv2 import numpy as np

from PIL import Image

import colorsys

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import matplotlib.image as mpimg

def rgb2gray(rgb): return[...,:3], [0.299, 0.587, 0.114])

img = mpimg.imread('0.jpg')
gray = rgb2gray(img)
plt.imshow(gray, cmap = plt.get_cmap('gray'))

cv2.waitKey() cv2.destroyAllWindows()

And you know I am trying to separate any color from the blue . As you can see there is a oil spill in the water and I am trying to give the spill clear, obvious color (green, red, black, etc ) which will be easy to calculate the total area of the pollution

OK, best of luck to you. :)

@sjhalayka thanks for the effort. @salute838, please in the future have at least a look at the documentation and the samples... this is a really basic issue that is explained very well there ...
