    Please look at the attached example picture for 30 to 60 seconds.

    The visual effect is supposed to be that of dried out paint which is cracked and peeling up from the surface. I look at it one time and it is as it should be. I look at it ten seconds later and I see a reverse effect ... the paint is thick and puffy and the cracks and holes now flow down to the background surface.

    The Mrs. sees it both ways also, but we both have corrected vision.

    Please answer in the poll as to whether you just see peeling paint, puffed up paint with holes or both.

    Thanks.

    At first look the paint is peeling.

    If I look at it for more than a few seconds it looks puffy with holes.

    Now I have a headache.

    Ouch.

    What you see depends on which point of the image you focus your eye on first. Focus only on the center of an uncracked section of paint then expand your focus to see the entire image....you see it as it really is. Focus on a crack itself then expand your focus to see the entire image and you will see a puffy image. The full image would be interesting.
