Laura's Eyes

At first the eyes in this image appear to be closed. But as you continue to look at them, they mysteriously appear to open and look back at you.

The illusion here is really not that mysterious. This is an illusion of contrast. Lighter areas tend to look brighter next to nearby dark areas. The girl's eyes look brighter the longer you look at them.
