Been curious about this...

Can it be done? How would it look like?

I think it has potential to look scary what would you think?

Thank you

It looks like mod1 Pablo.

Theres not a wide tonal range so its a little flat in appearance.

Mod2 is likely more what you wanted, - a lot more contrast?

This is done using an Invert layer in PS.

I'd certainly prefer to print from V2, Willie!

In terms of the original question, I'm not sure this works terribly well: the last time I saw really effective use of negative images was in the second Doctor Who stroy - the one that introduced the Daleks (used whne the Daleks used their weapons, combined with the victim falling to the floor. Really effective back then, with 405 line screens and black-and-white only).

I wonder whether the composition would look better if the twigs were clear of the roofline, instead of touching in a few places?

It's refreshing to have a specific and non-standard question here in the Critique Gallery: thank you, Pablo!

Interesting photo and question.
I can't add much except to say i would have tried to do what Willie's mod 2 has done. Also agree on creating separation between twigs and roof line.

Thank you all!

I figured the inverse would look like multiple lightings were hitting the building!

If you want anegative, then Willies mod 2 is the one. Not sure why you woud want it, though.

You are, of course, very under exposed and that gives a very heavy flat original. We used to call it a muddy effect in the wet darkroom. More exposure and high contrast for me.

For me Mod 2 works very well - the comments on the trees and rood line are fair I think but retrospect is fine for all of us! As it is it works very well. Steve
