I think there's too much detail for pseudo-solarisation. It's getting lost and making the image just look over-processed. I think it would be better straight.

Solarisation is better for familiar shapes we can identify with, and less intricate detail.

Thanks for your comments Nick

I chose to solarise to bring out the detail in the panels as the original photograph was poorly lit and I think today I would process in its original form and process the panels seperately to enhance the details.

The sky looks a bit odd with the solarisation, Eric.
I wonder if you took some closer shots of the panels on the wall.
I think that concentrating on the wall and panels at the time of shooting would have been a good idea, placing an odd number in your frame and having a bit of perspective on them, as you have here, but eliminating any road or sky so that you get good detail on the panels.
I like the image as shown, it's well composed, but think I would prefer the original.
Pamela.

Thank you for your comments Pamela. The short answer is the original picture was poorly taken and I agree a concentration on just the panels will make a much better shot. This was originally photographed in Infra Red which is why the sky is so strange (as well as the solarisation changes).

I intend to retake this shot, possibly at night as the panels are usually illuminated.

Actually rather effective. Messing about with images has to add something and I think it does here. Possibly a little darker image would be even better.

I think I would have darkened the wall slightly. I like the shot, and the way your eye is drawn around the bend.SmileSmile
