Ave Satani

By slephoto
St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC.
This was a bit of an experiment. For those who're familiar with wet darkrooms, there's a process where you make a solarized print and then use it as a paper negative to make a new positive, sometimes taking it through 2 or 3 generations, and use a fine-point pen or sharpie to trace the lines on the intermediary images to maximize the moire effect. I had this snapshot sitting on my HD and I thought I'd experiment with replicating the effect in Photoshop.
I like the "sketch" effect I ended up with.

Thank you! I'm hiding your comment 'cause I'm planning a contest & it gives one of the answers away. I'll unhide it later. :D
