Just open up an image of a blue-ish night sky in an urban setting and draw blue on it versus black.
Just as an example, here's a new manip I just did. The black stands out a lot more than the blue.
Bat-Fleck in Gotham:
If you ask me...the black in the original photo definitely blends in a lot better with the surroundings. Especially considering the surroundings are black in colour. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to **** on blue-grey as a possibility, but I'm not seeing how blue blends in (especially if you think about the fact that Batman isn't always going to be blending in with the night sky, what about shadows or dark places?)
