Blue Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey
This is an older picture that I have ignored in the past, but thought I’d do a black and white conversion on it and see what happened.
I love the architectural details and textures, and felt that it was worth doing a black and white conversion.
Compositionally, I like to isolate objects, and with this I zoomed in in order to remove the outline of the building so I could focus attention on the details…which I suppose is kind of isolating an element or elements from a much wider scene.
Anyway, I much prefer the black and white version over the original version which was illuminated at night, and so looked very orange with black shadows.
