The image S(x, y) is composed of two images: the illumination L(x, y) and reflectance R(x, y) images, then we can separate R(x, y) from L(x, y) in order to generating Retinex
effect, the problem is known to be ill-posed mathematically.

From another aspect, patch is successfully used in the field of image processing recently, not only face recognition [14-16] but also image denoising [17-19], image superresolution [20,21], and image decomposition (cartoon-texture [22,23] or illumination-reflectance  and further retinex
image enhancement ).
