Solar Scape

By conrad  
A new method for me: I solarised this one in PaintShop Pro. I had an image which I really liked compositionwise, but it had rather flat colours. Increasing saturation didnt do enough for it. I was looking at it, wishing that I knew how to give it an infrared effect - but I didnt. And then I came across the "solarize" option in PaintShop Pro, and really like the result. Nothing else done to it. Just to be clear about what it is: its a shot of a Dutch windmill with giant cow parsley in front. Im curious to hear what you think...

In case anyone wants to compare with the original: this is what the image looked like before I used the "solarize" option...
