The Serbian exhibition PHOTO PCA CIRCUIT 2018 is organized by Photo Club Arizona (PCA), Photo Group Dragacevo (PGD), and Photo Group Stitkovo (PGS). Photo Group Dragacevo has selected six of my photos to be exhibited and awarded one of them a gold medal: “Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque (Muscat, Oman)” in the Open Monochrome category. The exhibition runs November 7-15 (PCA), November 20-30 (PGD), and December 15-25 (PGS).
I enjoy re-editing older photos. One, I hope I’ve gained some skills I didn’t possess when I originally edited the photos. Second, it gives me a chance to go back through the originals and see if I spot something I missed the first time around. In this case, I had edited this one before, though in color.
The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is the main mosque in the Sultanate of Oman, located in the capital city of Muscat. In 1992, Sultan Qaboos directed that his country should have a Grand Mosque and its construction began in 1995. The mosque is built from 300,000 tons of Indian sandstone, with a total capacity of up to 20,000 worshipers, making it the fourth largest in the world. The newly built Grand Mosque was inaugurated by the Sultan of Oman in May 2001.
