The BW effect works well, if it weren`t for the modern tourist boat this could have been taken years ago!

Also a breeding ground for vicious ankle biting mosquitoes! But I also have good memories of Dalyan. Iztuzu beach and the rock tombs shown here were fantastic. It's not hard to imagine the African Queen movie being partly filmed here in the reed channels. If you search my gallery you will find a close up shot of the tombs lit at night. Tfs!

Your monochrome approach creates an older film feel to an interesting scene with the boat surrounded by dense plant life, with a distant glimpse of the historical Lycian Rock Tombs.

I like your idea to turn this picture into b&w and find it very interesting. The tight composition is great but maybe the colours of the boat would be distracting and the upper part deserves much attention too. Your vantage point is very intriguing, the tight frame is full of details and textures and there's a sense of mystery too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

It has been a while since I have seen a B&W photo from this area. Kardar Tourism - sounds so sophisticated for a dolmush motor boat!
