Second post on the reflection I saw indoor's the lounge-bar of the Accadia-hotel in Herzliya.
Mounted the camera on the bar, and taken with a timer.
Modern painting decorating the far side wall, triggered me to take this shot.
Here is the first post, a wider picture.
A 16:9 aspect ratio.

Thanks to your imagination the complete interior of this lounge-bar became one big artistic work!
Very nice with the diagonal line of the dark chairs that separate both parts.
Best regards, Paul

Nice warm tones, light is perfectly captured and what an effect with these reflections, well seen.
josepmarin (57623) 2013-02-20 12:06
a clever composition based on the reflections of the amazing wall-painting on the bar, as in a big mirror.
I like the graphical success, the good light and the beautiful golden tones of this photo.
macjake (53952) 2013-02-20 12:47
I can just here claude and gert saying right now how the photo would be enhanced by including people in the scene :)
the problem with that, is the people would probably be agitated by someone photographing them while they are relaxing at the bar!
so sometimes its a hit and miss while taking photo's of people.
personally, i like it.
its not too often we can use a table top as a reflective source
good eye and well executed

An excellent picture not easy to take
There was many lights, good idea, very original
adramad (36261) 2013-02-20 13:06
Wow ..... Fabulous composition, superb really is like a beautiful painting of modern art, undoubtedly the beautiful wall design is powered by the extraordinary reflexes.
Very good sharpness and brightness.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy a good day.
nikkitta (13921) 2013-02-20 14:43
great capture, plenty of creativity, which is reflection , which is not?
Good work with the light
Seems almost an abstract work or art
Well done, congrats

This time I will refrain from joking about your bad habit and rather marvel at this "double modern art" tableau judiciously captured to show the "ying and yang" of it; they are actually complementary forces interacting to form a whole appealing painting!
jcpix (12508) 2013-02-20 17:35
Another great shot of this lounge Ike, the soft golden tones are soothing and the reflection looks crystal clear. I like the white balance used, keeping out the unnatural blue's or greens from the artificial lighting. The art on the wall obviously adds even more interest, there's a lot to take in here. I like how the solid black masses from the chairs break up the pattern/reflection, but still creates one of its own. Nicely composed and well taken without a tripod, good use of the timer. :)
Sonata11 (33201) 2013-02-20 20:35
very beautiful and interesting composition of this place. Wonderful executed image with spectacular colors, sharpness, clarity, great reflection.Perfectly well done. Tfs. Love it.
siolaw (38074) 2013-02-20 20:41
You managed an excellent abstract artistic shot out of an usual view! Good symmetric framing and pleasant light/colour management with sharp detail.
delpeoples (52771) 2013-02-21 3:55
Oh yes I remember your previous shot of this beautiful hotel/ I really like the warm golden light and the interesting mural. The tight framing / cropping works really well here, it almost looks like an abstract painting. nice work, what a nice place to stay!
chrisvek (7001) 2013-02-21 7:30
Very nice shot with awesome details and ligthning usage.Perfect colors and ligthning usage.Very good job.
Have a nice day
yquem46 (38382) 2013-02-21 8:09
Excellent exposure management and high visual impact
Best regards, have a nice evening
Royaldevon (27495) 2013-02-21 8:23
This appears like a work in silk. The colours and the patterns seem luminous.
A wonderful puzzle for the eyes!
I would imagine that this shot has had closer and longer attention than most other shots that have been critiqued. Once an interpretation has been made, the composition and sharp clarity have to be applauded.
My warm regards,
Nicou (118038) 2013-02-21 8:42
Grandiose image et captage superbe vue quelle lumière quel effet ce reflet quel éclairage avec ce éléments en noir une splendeur.
Bravo et amitié
ourania (28278) 2013-02-21 8:56
this narrower view on the artistic decoration and the the reflections on the bar has more intensity, in my opinion, as it makes the designs and the colours stand out better, gives a more intriguing role to the shapes and makes the light look warmer, mellower and even more attractive. Both graphism and atmosphere are exalted. A lovely picture, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
mkamionka (29732) 2013-02-21 9:02
lovely composition. Very interesting geometry, it has a bit surprising and positively disorientating effect. Nice colors and low light contribute to a charming atmosphere.
Very well seen and captured,
Cricri (102973) 2013-02-21 10:00
Pas mal du tout l'idée de ce cadrage plus serré du bar, sublime décor, couleurs et reflets, très belle réalisation, top aussi dans les lumières
UlfE (14641) 2013-02-21 11:04
This one is even better than # 1. The reflections of the colorful tapestry and lamps in the tabletop of glass are really great. Your light management was excellent and your hand was very steady. What a sharpness and detail! TFS and have a nice evening!
ManuMay (34411) 2013-02-21 11:10
Yes...very good one, and yes, I prefer this one to the first posted..
Very good composition and light management, fine reflections and very good cadrage, this is a great work Ike...Congratulations...
jlbrthnn (79791) 2013-02-21 13:12
The graphic art of photography and its reflection are the best effect. The composition is clever. Exposure and colors are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
jhm (136638) 2013-02-22 3:19
Exactly a modern painting but very well taken.
I like the different colors and nice light between the a lot different parts on the wall.
Your second picture is very well with the glass wall to the rightside.
Excellent captured, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
Eric_vd (289) 2013-02-22 3:34
THis looking like a painting, well seen and great capture!!
mirosu (12754) 2013-02-22 18:30
Excellent interior photo. I like the nice light and the composition with the excellent reflections. The straight view is very good. The horizontal arrangement works very well here. Well done.
sacavem (18610) 2013-02-23 5:33
Uma composição muito interessante e bem realizada, com nitidez e luminosidade perfeita.
ACL1978 (7467) 2013-02-23 9:21
Great use of low lighting to create this wonderful mood, Ike. There's almost no brightness difference between the art on the wall and its reflection, which creates an illusory lack of depth, making the line of chairs a graphical element stretching through. Great effect, especially with the door at left. Thanks!
marabu61 (7799) 2013-02-24 6:03
Bokar tov Ike
Great idea and perfectly executed. The exosure is spot on, the light pleasing and the art on the wall stunning with a great reflection on the table.
I like this kind of artistic shots a lot.
ruisc_pt (10525) 2013-02-25 8:24
fantastic image yet with a very simple technique.

danos (84301) 2013-03-06 23:29
nice the view as the presentation of the created reflections of the interior of the lounge-bar of the hotel.I like the excellent light and colour management as the clarity of the image.
Have a good day,Danos
adores (35040) 2013-03-08 13:59
I prefer this one! The beautiful reflection, the diagonal created byy the chairs... Even the light is very good. A simple subject that gave you a very good shot!
maria-v1981 (10814) 2013-03-12 5:56
Reflections are a very interesting part of photography, but sometimes is not easy to get a good shot. But seems you captured wonderfull this one Ike. The composition is really very nice, the sharpness and the clarity of the colors fantastic. Vey well seen and captured.
Have a nice evening,

another excellent sample of this kind of image using reflections. I liked the abstract mood and colors here. the design of the drawing in the walls is interesting too.
daddo (23104) 2013-06-30 3:58
Hi Ike. A creative shot filled with lovely light and happy, bright colours and shapes. Well seen and taken. Shalom. Klaudio.
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-08-27 20:24
A very artful capture, Ike ~
lovely warm mood and colors, the artwork seems to dance and the black chairs float like islands through the middle of it. great shot, nicely seen!
mcmtanyel (11571) 2013-09-21 14:50
This is a very fine work of art that deserves to be noticed. Exquisite symmetry, nice colors. TFS.
