Sunset over Canakkale Harbour looking towards Gallipoli in the distance. I thought about increasing contrast in the shadows at right, but that would reduce the shadow detail. There is a vehicular/passenger ferry across the Dardanelles Straits, which provide entry to the Sea of Marmara and on to the Black sea, and were the cause of the Trojan war and failed attempts in WWI by allied troops to force their way in.

Excellent composition with the prows of the boats making a superb lead-line toward the setting sun. Beautiful light and colours. Fine presentation.

Excellent sunset view with beautiful colours in the rippling water. You managed the difficult light excellently to bring out sufficient level of detail in the foreground boats thanks for sharing this lovely atmospheric photograph.
Have a great new week.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the boats and the hills is giving depth to the scene. The sinset is giving nice colors to the sky. Have a nice day.

A really well composed shot, where the moored boats lead effectively around the scene.
You have captured a 'mood', a really calm, warm, end-of-the-day relaxed feeling. I can almost hear the gentle lapping of the water against the hulls.
I particularly like the colours on the water.
Have a great day,

Only just a small part of the fire-ball still above the slop, Chris, but was enough to shed a golden tone over water.
Great dusk scenery, given the boats anchored are in superb clarity.

a perfectly managed sunset shot this. It captures the mood and sense of calm so perfectly. Love the colours on the waters.

Hola again Crist
Like the way you managed light at sunsets with the red reflects on the waters
Good composition with the boats in diagonal at the right
What I enjoy here the more is the ambience of a place so plenty of history
Informative geographical note
Well done, tfs

Lovely colors of the sunset! I like the way the line of boats seems to point to the setting sun. Did you go across to Gallipoli and see the monuments and the battlegrounds?

Hi Chris! I also like this one! It is lovely and beautiful! Cheers, Neyvan
