A "busy" view from the Haifa RR-platform, all in one…
The locomotive, two cruise ships, one is already puffing smoke,
8 cranes and warehouses on port, and the station lamp-poles & clock.
A roof-tiles line on upper right-side, was left deliberately to add a "frame" - but did not included the whole, due to some disturbence there.
Thought to post something different.
Location of the RR station in Haifa: 32.822, 34.997

There is indeed much to see in this busy scene, which is pleasantly lit and has very good colours. The line of lamp poles creates some interesting graphism and gives the image depth. I rather like it.

Definitely a lot going on here Ike, but for anyone that has traveled it invokes a unique feeling of adventure and excitement around such areas. Although there's not one specific subject or anything in particular, it's that emotion that comes through for me with this photo. Nice arrangement of this platform to showcase the different forms of transportation.

you found a great point of view and composed your picture very skillfully so that each of the elements finds its place. (Only the little black shape at the upper right corner looks a little at a loss:)You have managed the light, the contrasts and the sharpness in a wonderful way. Along with the excellent dynamic perspective, they contribute greatly to the comfortable legibility of this "busy view". I feel I've learned a lot about the platform and the port from this picture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

It truly is a busy place, but it is all nicely pulled together by the repetition of the poles on the platform. Nicely done.

Gosto desta fotografia não turística da cidade de Haifa.
Isto mostra o país em movimento, boa iluminação e cor.
Desejo que tenha passado bem os últimos dias na companhia de seus familiares.Não deve ser fácil viver junto de terroristas.

An original and magnificent composition, where all the space is too full of elements, the platform, the train, boats, cranes ..... All this gives a nice graphic to the image, which has a nice morning light and color.
Have a nice weekend.

Interesting document about transport in Haïfa
We can see port, railways
Nice blue color, many details

Hi Ike !!
a busy scene but quite interesting, nice combinations of blue and white colours ( the colours of the Israeli flag )
I like the design of the light poles ( tilted backwards )
Ike..... it is good from time to time to post something different and unusual.
I enjoyed looking at this photo.

Lot of visual informations gathered here that express Haifa prosperity by means of a lines "knitting" creating intense depth in those portuary installations.
Fine overall depiction from under feet to infinity.
Cricri (109625) 2012-11-23 21:57
Bien pensé le cadrage avec la grande horloge, le graphisme des lampes, bonne lumière, belle image de ce port plein de détails
Kielia (23993) 2012-11-24 6:12
this is really something quite different in you gallery!
It is a busy composition indeed but you managed to give the viewer an excellent idea of this hectic place. The photographer’s perspective is outstanding. My compliments!
krzychu30 (15510) 2012-11-25 9:03
really busy picture,with so many different things to admire.I like photos showing other,maybe less known sides of the cities,like this one.Great combination of transport and industrial side of Haifa.Excellently composed scene with perfectly placed lamps creating diagonal line through the frame.
Have a nice evening

I like port cranes. They are very photogenic so that I have even created a theme "Cranes by Mariusz". They are not pretty but there is something special about them.
Very well spotted port composition here with industrial feeling.

Looks like a peaceful day in Israel. Hopefully it is in peace forever. Wish you the best.
raszid62 (18585) 2012-11-28 2:26
I imagine there must be a buzz here. Big cities are very noisy. Here I see a communication center; bus station, rail and ferry port. In the background I can see even port cranes. Very good image quality.
הצהריים טובים. אני מתאר לעצמי שחייב להיות כאן buzz. ערים גדולות הן מאוד רועשות. הנה אני רואה את מרכז תקשורת, תחנת אוטובוס, רכבת ונמל מעבורת. ברקע ניתן לראות אפילו מנופי נמל. איכות תמונה טובה מאוד. .

Lep pogled na sat, i pristaniste sa kranovima ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazana platforma.
Sve najbolje za vikend.
Nice view of the clock, and dock with cranes ...
Good image sharpness, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good lyrics and compositions, demonstrated good platform.
All the best for the weekend.

Good angle for the presentation, the clock is well placed, interesting depth result, tfs.
kato (11630) 2013-03-21 2:17
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see various objects of ship/cranes/warehouses on port and locomobile/platform/poles with lamp on railway station as you note. Here looks like a busy place.
mcmtanyel (14939) 2013-07-04 9:47
This is indeed a busy photo but it gives us a good glimpse of a busy modern port. Excellent DOF, good color and light management.
berek (41101) 2015-05-12 22:46

All the best.
