This is the actual wooden horse from the movie 'Troy', which now stands on the Cannakale waterfront. It is a lot more impressive than the kitschy wooden horse with posing windows for tourists in Troy ('Truva' in Turkish) which is about 40 km south from here.

The distance between the wooden horse and the hills is giving depth to the composition. I like the ffect of the horse in the shadow. The Sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

It certainly looks most impressive in silhouette. A well exposed image with lovely light and sunset tones. The horse is ideally placed in the frames and nicely counterbalanced by the trees.

Nice silhouette of this huge wooden horse against the backdrop of the setting sun. I like the reflections of the setting sun on the platform. The photo has excellent colors and clarity. Thanks for sharing.

Très beau coucher de soleil sur la silhouette du Cheval de Troie avec une très bonne netteté de l'image. Félicitations.

un tramonto speciale, la silhouette del cavallo più famoso al mondo domina la scena, i colori del cielo sono splendidi e la composizione risulta piacevolmente calda.
Felice Anno Nuovo

Happy New Year!
We knew the story of Troy long long time ago. Lucky you had chance to be the place near the story happened. You captured a beautiful sunset. The wooden horse becomes a silhouette.

splendida e inquietante cattura della ricostruzione del famoso cavallo di Troia.
Un'accoppiata suggestiva: tramonto e cavallo che ha permesso una composizione interessante ricca di riflessi dorati in un ambiente di particolare nitidezza.
Ciao e buona serata

Attractive structure. The legend is surely interesting. I like the strong contrast for this image. Well done.
Enjoy a great new year!

This Troyan horse looks quite nice, specially here during the sunset. I remember how disappointed I was in Troy some years ago. Not much to see when you have no imagination to see the whole building from some stones. And extremely kitchy horse as attraction. Beautiful light. fantastic dark silhouette against the sunset sky.

We have seen the famous horse of Troy..this is the first time I am seeing this structure in silhouette. Beautifully done with lovely pastel hues which I liked

I haven't been here when I was there, but it was almost 20 years ago. I believe the country is much more touristic now. Great shot, with the silhouette of the wooden horse and the beautiful sunset.

This makes a nice accompaniment for your next Blue Hour photo of the same place. I can't decide which I like the better, the sillhouettes here are compelling, but I also like the details in the horse you captured in the next image. Both are composed expertly and show your skills in dealing with the differing light conditions.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day

Awesome composition! I like the placement of all elements that made this a great presentation of this famous wooden horse. Love the colors of the sunset. Good use of the silhouette and good use of the people for scale. Very well done, tfs.
