look at this!



Don't ask me how or why it works but it does....fascinating. If you watch the above images from your seat in front of the computer, Mr.Angry is on the left, and Mrs.Calm is on the right. Get up from your seat, and move back about eight feet!! They switch places!! This illusion was created by Phillippe G. Schyns and Aude Oliva of the Univ. of Glasgow . This proves that we may not be seeing what's actually there, all the time!! I do not know how they generated this fascinating image, and I believe no-one else is able to generate anything similar in Photoshop.

Ed will be known as the Tiger Woods of the integration business, followed closely with the renaming of his company to "Hotties A/V". The tag line will be "We like big racks and tight holes"...

it is a matter of focus, distance and info (rezolution) close up the details are important , so you see the eyes and stuff, from farther away that detail is harder to see, so the overal becomes more important

Wo!

The "eyes" have it! lol

Part of the reason why TV/DVD/movie/HT viewing is so subjective.

Are we "really" seeing what the other person is pointing out, or are we seeing something different?

Very interesting photos! Is that you on the left djy? Or on the right? I guess it depends on how far I am away from the screen! he he

Oh to be so young again . . . but then looking at all the trouble around the world, perhaps not.
