Is this woman spinning clockwise or counterclockwise...? *hint* Look at the shadow below to switch directions.

No matter how long I stare at it, I can't see her going in any direction except clockwise...

I see only clockwise.

How do you guys see the counterclockwise bit? The hint doesn't help me much...

I initially could only see a counterclock direction... it took some work to remap the visual input to a clockwise motion.

I can see both and switch when I want to, just needs a little bit of concentration ...

Wow.. that's really cool! At first I could only see clockwise for like a good five minutes but after just kinda staring forward without really focusing on the image I was able to flip it to go counterclockwise. For those who can only see it one way.. try just kinda looking forward, not really focusing on the image but just kinda seeing it in your peripheral vision. Eventually you'll end up seeing it just being an image that goes right and left, and with a little concentration you can flip it one way or the other. Awesome find!

that's probably some indirect reference that our visual cortex processing is wired in some diametrically opposed way

I only see it clockwise, too lazy to damage my eyes to see the other version.
Personally I like the more instant effect type, stuff like after image is too tiring.
Stuff like simple 3D effect, real-life impossible objects and color/size/etc variety.

If you guys like optical ilusions you can get them by the ton at http://www.moillusions.com/


Edit -- Heh.. I accidently saw it right after writing this.. the trick is to not look at her legs.
