A splendid long perspective up this interesting road culminating in the temple dome. I like the framing offered by the leaning tree on the left. A pleasantly lit image with good colours and lots of detail.

Seemingly simple, empty and wide street Mediterranean, but there in the background I can see a magnificent building of Basilica on the top of Carmel. Lovely view from the place. Beautiful, but subdued colors and excellent sharpness.
הצהריים טובים. לכאורה פשוט, ריק ורחב רחוב ים תיכון, אך יש ברקע ניתן לראות מבנה מרהיב בחלק העליון של בסיליקת כרמל. נוף יפה של המקום. יפים, אבל צבעים מאופקים וחדות מצוינת. .

The lentgh of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of vciew is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Good morning Ike,
Love the perspective of this framing, the street takes the viewer right through the image. I certainly recognize the gardens that it leads into, this helps give me more of an idea of the city layout. Great timing to grab this shot with no traffic, nice clean photo on a beautiful sun filled day. Nicely done again!

Une très belle lumière et longue perspective menant sur les hauteurs et le dôme, bon cadrage et présentation
emilbo (22616) 2012-12-11 18:53
Même sous une forte lumière la photo est magnifique avec une excellente perspective. Les jolis édifices sont bien mis en évidence .J'aime bien la rue en diagonale qui nous mène au dôme plus loin et les poteaux qui la bordent en avant-plan sont très intéressants, Belle prise de vue et bonne qualité d'image.
Toutes mes amitiés,

A magnificent view of this part of the city, which looks nice and quiet, away from the traffic of downtown, magnificent view, with the side we see the back garden and building blocks.
Good management of the light, with a nice colorful very natural and perfect sharpness.
Have a nice day.

a lovely urban scenery and a very interesting point of view to the Golden Temple. The picture is composed with great skill offering superb depth and perspective and a lot of attractive details. You've managed the strong light very well through your point of view and settings. I like very much the brightness of the light, the colours and the tranquil and pleasant atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Nicedepth and lines here. I chose this image because at the end of the 1980s I was in Israel for four months living in Kiryat Malakhi. One night I took the bus to Haifa and arrived late - nowhere had a room for me to stay so I ended up sleeeping on the floor behind the French embasssy wher I spent most of the night observing ladies of the night plying their trade with truck drivers.
I really enjoyed my time in Israel - wonderful place.
kato (11630) 2013-06-13 18:50
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the road straightly extended with ups and down to the Temple dome. It's impressive in a lot of houses standing on the hill and old houses along the road, too. The shadow projected to the road draws out a good effect.
fabbs99 (16739) 2013-07-08 23:32
Old image but still very fresh.The lighting and colors as well as the architecture of the place is excellent.An excellent and beautiful job perfectly done, congratulations my friend.
mcmtanyel (14245) 2013-07-18 18:17
In spite of the difficult angle, you managed the light well. It was worth the risk, the POV is excellent. I still can't get over how green it is (of course, the photo was taken in November).
nikkitta (14992) 2013-09-25 15:38
So this is Haifa and Carmel mount?
Like the perspective you presented this famous place going far and up, also good to watch the city´s architecture
Nice natural frame and informative note
