Which way is she turning?

Clockwise or anticlockwise, for me she switches rather regularly, often just shaking her leg in front from side to side before choosing one.

Story Here

Im curious if other photographers have a balance between the two,

Wow! Thanks for sharing - that's a bit of a trip. For me, she spins clockwise, but if I jiggle her around a bit she'll go the other way... until I stop concentrating, and then she switches back.

She's definitely spinning clockwise to me. Now to go read.

Edit: OK, tried focusing to make her go the other way. Not happening.

She is going clockwise. So what does that mean...that I am going in the right direction?....that would be a first...lol!!

I'm gonna take a wild guess that about 90% of us photographers are "right-sided" for our brains. I had trouble even gettin her to spin countherclockwise and she only did it for 1 turn...and I suck at math and science too :P

Counterclock, but when i clicked on the link she changed direction.
10/12/2007 12:34:48 AM · #8
i used to do this with the cealing fans at work beacuse they moved really slow, at first she was moving counter clockwise, now she is moving clockwise and i cant get her to flip back over

I think I may have left-side brain damage.
10/12/2007 12:38:39 AM · #10
Clockwise. No counterclockwise at all.
10/12/2007 12:40:34 AM · #11
well, ive been watching her, lol this is strange, she changes back and fourth every so onece in a while i think the gif is doing it :P
10/12/2007 12:42:43 AM · #12
This is cool, I can get her to spin in either direction at will. She spins in the one direction until I don't look at her directly, then I can see her change direction. She stays that way until I don't look at her directly again. Neat!
10/12/2007 12:43:02 AM · #13
Hmmm, I must be equally brain dead on both sides. She alternates directions pretty regularly.
10/12/2007 12:43:34 AM · #14
That is weird. If I stare directly at her she's counterclockwise but switches back and forth as I'm reading the thread and not looking directly...if that makes sense.?
10/12/2007 12:44:24 AM · #15
Yeah, I am definitely experiencing both directions. I can change the direction by just a quick glance down to her feet. It seems to be pretty random which way she goes.

I just answered this at another board (financial)..... Interesting because a lot more of them were left then it appears below.

I cannot make her spin anti-clockwise whatever I do. She spins clockwise. Yet, the list of attributes fit well apart from a couple that are plain wrong :-)

Bad shadow really... even backlit it's boring with just the plain background 4/10 :-).

I read the story and found this hilarious -

Now my head hurts....
10/12/2007 12:50:47 AM · #19
clockwise for me
10/12/2007 12:53:21 AM · #20
First it was counter-clockwise, then clockwise, and then I concentrated a bit and can now change my perception of the direction at will. I suppose this fits well enough with the dichotomy of being both an MBA student and an artist :-)
10/12/2007 12:53:57 AM · #21
after some practice, I am now able to change the direction at will. To make her spin clockwise I think of something emotional, and to make her spin counter-clockwise I just start analyzing something.

Try it, maybe you'll be able to as well.

lets make this interesting for everyone, lets put to girls together, when i did it i could get them to spin opposite directions.' . substr('//www.news.com.au/common/imagedata/0,,5693171,00.gif', strrpos('//www.news.com.au/common/imagedata/0,,5693171,00.gif', '/') + 1) .

' try covering up one eye and as her legs come together switch to the other, see if she switches

clockwise, and I can't get it to change. The two girls still spin in the same direction, clockwise. Weird.
10/12/2007 12:56:49 AM · #24
Clockwise, no matter what.
10/12/2007 12:57:31 AM · #25
try looking at my post and not concentrating on the images, thats the way i can get mine to change over the quickest, its really a trip when they go in opposite directions
