Solarized Iris #1

The flower makes a good subject for pseudo-Sabattier effect experimentation.  The original color version is nearly monochrome yellow and the lighting is flat.  The digital solarization technique introduces Mackie lines that outline the important details.
Technical: Nikon D100, Nikkor 24-84mm f2.8-f4 in macro mode, ISO 200, 85mm @ f/4.0 @ 1/2500s, handheld.  RAW file processed in Lightroom 2.6, then edited in Nik Silver Efex Pro to solarize and add film effects.

I would love to use this as an album cover for Second Signal. Wonderful shot.
