Solarized Galaxie

No, this isn't an astronomy lesson, just a post about a photographic process called solarization that I applied to an image of a Ford Galaxie taillight. Solarization, also called Sabattier effect, is applied to through a filter in Photoshop and creates a "negative" effect on certain parts of the image. Sometimes I will apply it twice to the same image just to give it a more dramatic effect.
There are a number of solarization groups on flickr and you can check out a couple here:
Solarization doesn't work on all images but to me it looks pretty wicked on classic cars.
