Prayer at the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (Turkish: Sultanahmet Camii), Istanbul. Built during the rule of Ahmed I, the mosque is popularly known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior.

 

I have used some of the methods in Jide Alakija's video tutorial on Black and Whites to achieve this conversion, especially the grain effect. However, I am still working on learning to create my perfect black and white, not so grey, so if anybody has black and white conversion tips, please help.

 

It's happy days over here, with targets and milestones in view :)

 

By the way, 10 days ago marked 2 years since my first post on shutterchance.

 

Best wishes to all. Have a fantastic weekend!
