Planed vs. Sanded

Can you tell which side (one side of the seam is planed, the other sanded straight through thoroughly through 220 by hand).

Also, for charlie, who always tells me that planed surfaces are full of lines - find them on either side.

Total time planing this panel to finish was about 30 seconds (it was already trued by a jointer, so not much to do). Total time sanding was a couple of minutes, and dusty.

I will switch sides sometime in the next week when I'm in the shop and not doing something, and then post the picture to see if the visuals flip flop.
