Color space conversion

I've been intrigued by Steven Pigeon's series on color spaces lately and wanted to give color space conversion a try in Python. In the following script I've reproduced several of the color spaces Pigeon mentions in the first five parts of the series.

Using NumPy this operation is almost trivial, but I added a few fun tidbits as well. Also note that, as I've mentioned before, PEP 465 has added the infix matrix multiplication operator @ to Python 3.5+.

Running this on an example image results in the following.
