You have captured this old gate from excellent perspective. Very nice light and excellent light & shadow play. Your high angle POV is also very good. Well done.

The pleasant warm light brings out the tones and textures in the old stone gateway to good effect. The point of view is well chosen and I like the lead-line offered by the nicely patterned cobbled street.

Perspective and depth are excellent taken.
High quality picture, an excellent subject.

Using the arch to frame the background is a good idea and it is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the gate. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

You're capturing well this gate by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the gate with bricks and tasteful shape. It's also interesting to hear that it is an important gate for Jewish, as you note in here. And, the surrounding greenery gives the gentleness to this gate.

Bonne diagonale de cette ancienne porte avec le haut couvert pour les marcheurs, bon jeu ombre et de lumière, très belle et intéressante image

Ciao dear Ike
An interesting bridge, especially the covering for it, no doubt needed because of the rainy weather conditions in winter. That it is also a significant site in Jewish history adds to the charm. Excellent documentary. When I get some time, I will read more about this place using the link.

Quelle vue de ce pont sueprbe compo et iamge quel cadrage et il fait comme une vague tout en pierre avec la couverture et le passage en vieux bois mervielleux.
Bravo et amitié

Like the way and POV of this capture of the very old gate with a covered part at the high
Good to add vegetation for frame and creative contrast of this obled street
carlo62 (23738) 2013-12-18 15:46
non avevo mai visto una porta sormontata da un passaggio coperto come questo, veramente bello e originale.
Bella anche la foto, che ce lo mostra al completo di archi e ambiente circostante.

This certainly makes for a pleasing entrance into town, a beautiful gate indeed. A bit of a different one too in that it has a wooden bridge type of walkway overhead, that's interesting in its own right. Many different textures seen with this composition, which is nicely balanced and open...you took a good angle here to showcase the archway. Bright, detailed and a lot of history to engage the visual appeal. A well thought out framing and presentation. Have a great day ahead.

This is a very interesting structure. If the title had not identified it as a wall, I would have guessed it's a bridge of some sort. I like your POV and your frame within the frame.
fabbs99 (14463) 2013-12-18 23:40
Excellent shot of the bridge like Entrance with a great POV and perspective.Also the beautiful colors and light, good sharpness in this image make it very special.TFS.

Bonjour, cher ami Ike,
Curieux pont avec ce passage sous couvert rappelant les courtines de vieux châteaux.
Une image intéressante et édifiante.
Royaldevon (24342) 2013-12-19 1:53
Good Morning Ike,
A really well composed shot, which uses the road and its shadow specked cobbles, to guide from the corner and under that ancient archway, into the distance. There is plenty of time to appreciate this old wall, which pleasingly travels on an opposing diagonal to the guiding road. The trees help to liven the scene with colour and freshness.
Have a lovely day,
cornejo (25531) 2013-12-19 5:32
Hello Ike, very good picture of this interesting old city gate, perfectly captured in this beautiful and interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this good work.
Good afternoon and happy weekend.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
ourania (22778) 2013-12-19 8:21
your choice of point of view is very interesting. Instead of showing us a straightforward view to the antique gate, you chose an angle that offers dynamism and renders the surrounding area attractive for its complementary details and textures. I like the elegant dynamism of the curves, the antique architecture is very intriguing. You managed the strong lighting contrasts aptly and offered us a clear and relaxing view. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Lep pogled na staru kapiju ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazana stara arhitektura, lep boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
A nice view of the old gate ...
Good composition and perspective, nicely demonstrated the old architecture, beautiful colors.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.
eldancer1 (23097) 2013-12-19 10:37
Looks like this gate is very sturdy to provide a good protection for the community. Good pov and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
adramad (33590) 2013-12-19 11:12
Sensational POV, this old bridge, which has the added attraction of the covered walkway that runs from the top, with good perspective entirely by Arch Street.
Nice color, in these natural tones.
Also both sharpness, such as lighting are great.
Well taken photo. I Like
Enjoy a good night.
krzychu30 (14996) 2013-12-20 2:01
much better weather than in your previous shot and something that immediately catched my eye,namely so nice play of light&shade.Of course the Old town´s wall looks impressive from this perspective,but for me the light is the feature,which makes the whole composition so attractive.
My best regards
ChrisJ (93442) 2013-12-20 2:26
Strangely enough this reminds me of the old city wall in Nanjing, China except there is no busy traffic hurtling through the arch. And it has a picturesque covering roof nicely paralleling the slight curve of the stone bridge. Good sharpness and shadow detail & I like the angled pov. Tfs!
photoray (8464) 2013-12-20 18:57
Interesting view of the Rashi Gate, a large Romanesque arch in multiple textured rocks, with a shelter roof.
This portion of the 'wall' appears more like a Roman aqueduct.
npecanhuk (59032) 2013-12-21 6:38
Hi Ike! Beautiful and interesting details ! Attractive picture with special regards to the management of light, chosen pov and composition! Cheers, Neyvan
Miguel82 (17319) 2013-12-21 11:56
Good view of that arch made with stones, it's a covered footbridge as well, so charming area, excellent colors and subdue light, all the best Ike, with respect
Waylim (24490) 2013-12-21 16:55
Nice photo of the old town gate. I can almost see the horse carriages going in and out instead of these cars. Also the knight in armor walking on top of the wall to patrol the city.
Good details and texture of the old brick wall. The green trees adds to the liveliness and summer feel to the atmosphere.
Thanks and have a good weekend.
jmdias (50359) 2014-01-01 23:41
very interesting this structure with these arches in brick and the timber structure above., I liked the quality of the image with good light and angle. TFS.
UlfE (14599) 2014-01-06 5:14
The lighting was quite strong but you managed the constrasts very well and your perspective and compostion is excellent. The cars are perfectly positioned and I like that the sign to the left and the lamp post to the right are included in their entirety. TFS and have a nice afternoon.
