We've all seen those nature photos that are oddly reflective, causing a displacement of the objects in the image. But what's going on there? Some people thought they saw things, while others couldn't wrap their heads around what was happening in the photo. It turns out it's just an optical illusion!

It's no secret that photography can be used to capture and evoke powerful emotions. Still, a recent study has found that something seemingly innocuous as reflections can profoundly impact how we process photos. According to the study, when people are shown reflection photos, their brains process the images in a significantly different way from regular non-reflection photos. The study's results were so surprising that they messed with some people's heads.

It's hard to know what is real these days. It seems that, with all the new technology and gadgets available, we are more confused about what is "real." This may be because our brains have trouble processing so much information at once without help from other senses like touch or smell. But do you think any of them were better? Which one did you find most confusing?
