While this photo has nothing in common with ‘Porvoo’ except your fondness for red (which I share) I will start with some differences that I feel makes this so much better. While both are illuminated with the warm light of a setting sun, most of the town shows no effect of that light, while the beach in Pori is completely bathed in the light. Anyone can catch the red sky of a setting sun and its reflection in water, but Pori captures it in the sky, in the tiniest bit of water, in the sand, and in the grasses. The light literally sets the grasses on fire, even though striking them from behind, so that some stalks are seen in silhouette, dark, and others shine bright with the light of the sun. The sand too shows this diversity, some patches hidden from the sun are dark, others glow in the final rays of the day. The sea is flat and does not distract the eye, the horizon is absolutely flat. This might have made the picture a bit boring, except that just as our eyes are drawn to the sun, the water reveals first a cluster of low rocks, then the horizon is broken first by a low island and then dramatically by a grove of trees in silhouette. Finally (star burst filter?) the sunlight is itself broken into its component parts illuminating the beach and the grasses in separate bands of more bright and less bright. Of course, it was not you who placed all these elements, but it was you who observed them in place and had the skill to capture then into a unified whole. In most photographs, one can say “Take out this detail and the picture would be better.” Not with this one. Every element is essential and every element contributes to the overall quality of the artistic view. Bravo Mehmet, bravo.
