Vulcanization or vulcanisation is a chemical process for converting rubber or relatedpolymers into more durable materials via the addition of sulfur or other equivalent “curatives.” These additives modify the polymer by forming crosslinks (bridges) between individual polymer chains. Vulcanized material is less sticky and has superior mechanical properties. A vast array of products are made with vulcanized rubber including tires, shoe soles, hoses, and hockey pucks. The process is named after Vulcan, Roman god of fire. Hard vulcanized rubber sometimes sold under the brand names ebonite or vulcanite, and is used to make hard articles such as bowling balls and saxophone mouth pieces. – Princeton University
Taken in 3 different exposures from -1ev to +1ev then manually combined using Photoshop. I think the same effect can be done in 2 exposures but I used the auto bracketing feature of my camera for this one so I ended up using 3 images. The colored version is okay too, but I think its too common and kind of boring so I decided to make it monochrome and add some drama to it. 🙂
