Pretty Lady Afterimage Optical Illusion

How are you all out there doing today? It’s Wednesday, so I’m pretty excited. Half of the work week is already gone. I’m so excited for the weekend that I’ve already began making plans for it. Do you have any plans for the weekend already? If so, what do you plan on doing? Let me know in the comments below.

Today, I have another new optical illusion that will allow you to interact with the illusion itself. This is an afterimage optical illusion of a pretty woman. All you have to do is stare at the green dot on this woman’s nose for no less than 30 seconds. After that, you should switch your focus to a blank surface in your house and you’ll still be able to see the woman. If you want to make the illusion more intense, you can blink your eyes rapidly.

  1. You can get this afterimage effect by staring at any picture for an extended time, then looking at a blank surface. It works best with a high contrast image, The cells in your retina get overstimulated in the white areas; they become depleted in the ions necessary for producing nerve signals; so become unable to respond strongly for a short time when you look away. This gives a darker ‘ghost’ afterimage in those places. The cells in the darker areas do not get overstimulated so show a relatively brighter afterimage there.

  2. If you close your eyes, the image is really vivid. It works because as your eyes see too much of one color, it immediately shows you its complimentary(opposite) color.

  3. An afterimage in general is an optical illusion that refers to an image continuing to appear after exposure to the original image has ceased. Prolonged viewing of the colored patch induces an afterimage of the complementary color (for example, yellow color induces a bluish afterimage). The “afterimage on empty shape” effect is related to a class of effects referred to as contrast effects.
