Looming

Here is the main “tourist” entrance for the Sultan Ahmed, aka Blue Mosque in Istanbul. I am not sure why there are 2 entrances since they both deliver you to the same massive room with towering dome ceiling, circular light fixtures hanging on strands strung up to the underside of the dome accentuated with the musty smell of tens of thousands of sweaty tourist feet. I was glad that a few birds made it into this shot. It almost looks infrared to me, but it is just a 3 exposure DRI converted to black and white.
