When I heard of the "Other Art forms" challenge I took that to mean that we needed to take pictures of art. The more I read and the more I thought about it the more I realized I was wrong. Of course I had already shot this so I figured I could use it. It might not be voter friendly but why shouldn't I enter it?

Processing was a lot and yet not. Levels adjustment, clarify and saturation boost plus a vignette were added in LR2. I did a pass in Noise Ninja and used the resulting TIFF in PSP XI. I used the cyanotype option in Time Machine without the photo edge. (Learned THAT lesson the hard way I am afraid). Tweaked levels again. Added the border. Resized to 1600. Two passes of Sharpen. Resized again to 800. Export to JPG. Voila!

Neat. Looks like perhaps some cooling fins on something, or perhaps it is just a sculpture.
