Sunset over the Black Sea from Boztepe Lookout in Trabzon. The silhouette bottom left is a minaret. There are frequent dolmus (minibuses) to and from the lookout that leave in the northwest corner of Ataturk Square. Turkish families make good use of the picnic table facilities scattered around the park to admire the spectacular views over Trabzon and the Black sea as they're sipping tea, eating and conversing.

The centrally positioned sun works well here with the rays fanning out down the frame. The silhouetted coastline creates a reference point and gives the image depth. I like the burnt orange tones.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the shore and the horizon is giving depth to the scene. The Sunset is giving nice colours to the sky and the water. It is giving a sense of senerity, have a nice day.

This is a puzzling photo for me. My expectation is that the Black Sea is to the north of Trabzon, so it is surprising to see the sun set in the north. I am sure the shore does not go straight east-west, but it is still disorienting. The colors are lovely, I am glad you left the silhouette effect alone (i.e. did not try to lighten shadows).
