The original image was, for all intents and purposes, a total bust. But, with a little PP manipulation, I was able to salvage this rather abstract-looking result.

I really like it. Almost looks painted or drawn with a CAD package. Would make an awesome piece of wall art

"playing with the light !" ( at least that's what I call it when I blow some highlights) It can some times create some interesting effects, as you have done here, I like it.
