Tweaking old photos in sepia

One of my favorite travel/photo bloggers Michael Lai of retireediary has offered some beautiful examples of sepia transforming a photograph into a piece of art including his work on a photo of Dolmabache Palace in Istanbul. His sepia looks like an 18th century etching. I’ve never been successful with sepia so I asked how he got such beautiful results and he was kind enough to tell me. So here is my first attempt.
