etching in Photoshop

High pass, then convert to duotone. Is it cheating? Yes. Does it have artistic merit? I haven't decided yet.

But since it's made from a 20 image stitch, the original can be reproduced at nearly 3 metres x 1 metre. Try doing that by scratching lines on a copper plate for 10 minutes! And in defence of the image, this reproduction at 600 pixels wide doesn't really do it justice.
