My father is a very talented man. When I was younger he was involved in many artsy things. He did leather work and painted. This is a close up of one of his paintings that he did in 1970. I call it his flower stage because ever thing he painted had these flowers in it. The way he painted them they looked like mums with technique he used. I made a diptych of the same photo. Just rotated the right one 180 degrees. To me they look like different textures. Do you see it?

It is amazing how our brain perceives light and shadow. Even though I know the paint edge is raised the left image looks recessed and I canít get my brain to believe itís raised. Fascinating image!

*gasp* Fabulous... love the way you've made us see it two different ways, too.

The diptych presentation makes for an interesting picture. The colours are beautiful. Your father really was talented (as are you!).

They do indeed look like different textures because our brain can't reconcile the difference in shadow direction. Good ides. Nice twist.

Wonderful capture, I would have never guesses it was a painting. I initially thought it was a wood carving.

I see it, and a nice subject to use for this effect. Also well photographed. It must be our eyes that expect the lighting to be the same left and right, and therefore interpret the same picture in a different way.

Fascinating to see how a simple rotation can completely change the outlook of this painting.

Very beautiful texture in this. You are very lucky to have a chance to photograph this. I like what you did with the diptych too. Well done.

Bright colors and such a wonderful texture. I definitely love the perspective of the two sides.

Not only the textures but the light seems different here. I love the bright color and swirling lines.

Yes I certainly do. Totally amazing, It is so wonderful what light and shade can do. Great concept.

What an amazing difference it made in the texture - and how ingenious of you to think of it .. beautiful warm colors on a cold night.

It looks more like you shot an object from the front and the back. It's crazy that you just rotated the image. I love the colors and the textures. Works well as a diptych. A bit of happiness and warmth in the cold of winter.

Wow, that's crazy. On the left, it looks like the paint strokes are coming out of the canvas. On the right, it looks like they're going into the canvas. What a crazy illusion.

Very nice...the right side of the flower looks upside down the left side looks inside out.

Yes I do! It's an interesting optical illusion. What a cool Dad you have!
