I am a big fan of the Nik Color Effects Pro filters for CNX2 and especially the Solarizing filter. For those of you that don't know Man Ray invented Solarization which was a darkroom technique that called for a short exposure of light while you were developing an image in an open tray. The results were unpredictable and he first did it in a portrait of Lee Miller his muse and famous photographer in her own right. She was also a female war correspondent in WWII.

So what I have posted here are two images in the compare mode in CNX2. original was rather ordinary, but when I added solarization it became dramatic. Give it a try.
