Solarized Roman Torso #2

After trying several variations of producing the Sabattier Effect by digital means, I think I've settled on one approach that I like and produces consistent results.  The subject here is a male torso from Rome.  It feels like an updated Man Ray or Lazlo Moholy-Nage.
Technical: Nikon D700, AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.4G, ISO 800, f/2.8 @ 1/90s.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.5 to correct exposure, color and camera preset, then edited in Nik Silver Efex Pro to apply a custom style I created that I call "Antique Solarization III".  Now that I've taken the trouble to create a custom style that I want to use in the future, I guess I'll have to buy the product.
