Speaking about dye, it's better to open new thread, I think.
I agree with you that at higher temperature, the reflection of polished metals is reduced. But the key point : why electrons do not absorb light but reflect it, is not explained yet.
Why graphite does not reflect (or just a little bit) ?
G and metals are all opaque for they have a lot of free electrons.
