nice to see picture from Bahá'í gardens.I´ve read a lot about this place and can only say your composition captures beauty of this place excellently.Just like I imagined it.Vertical format seems to be here the only option to present us these terraces so nicely and you did it perfectly.Also quality is superb,just like the colors,which are so bright and vibrant.It´s a pleasure for our eyes to admire such view.

Belle présentation , lumière et couleurs excellente tout comme le POV, donnant a la fois perspective et diagonale, très belle réalisation
jemaflor (81374) 2013-02-06 12:45
Interesting pov with the dome and great effect with all these lines and diagonal, perfect light capture.
pierrefonds (55250) 2013-02-06 13:22
The distance between the garden and the shrine is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the garden and of a sectionof the shrine. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
marabu61 (7443) 2013-02-06 14:07
a very pleasant architectural shot from Haifa with some gorgeous deep saturated colors. I love the way the repeating walls lead the eye in a perfectly symmetrical way on towards the dome on top of the hill.
have a good day

Good morning Ike,
I must say, I've thoroughly enjoyed every picture you've posted of these gardens...each one brings out something new in its composition. The lighting I find to be the most appealing, it shows so much detail and natural color. This is very pleasing to view, I can only imagine taking the time to stroll through the grounds, making it even more enjoyable. Thanks for another wonderful look!
GiovanniG (2375) 2013-02-07 0:04
Well composed with great DoF and color. The detail is excellent. Well done!
serp2000 (38305) 2013-02-07 0:40
Clevr point of view, I like this composition with the few levels. If you remember I posted a night view of the Baha'i Garden. This is wonderful place in Haifa. Thanks for memories!
jhm (135806) 2013-02-07 4:16
What a lovely clear picture with Haifa as subject.
This shrine is a very nice place.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation. TFS.

Voilà the perfect setup for a most-attractive picture: The cône-shaped trees help leading attention upwards, one step at a time like a stairway to Heaven, towards dominant Shine.
Of course, that much greenery constitutes a powerful eye-catcher!
Nicou (117290) 2013-02-07 6:30
Avec la diagonale de cyprès dans le jardin quel captage, cette coupole est merveilleuse quelle architecture et rendu quel tons et belle lumière superbe.
Bravo et amitié
Royaldevon (26831) 2013-02-07 7:48
THe vertical format was a good choice, for it allowed you to include the very important line of conifers, providing a fine sense of depth, on the way to the focal shrine. You have controlled the strong sunlight well and captured interesting details in this sharp exposure.
My warm regards,
mkamionka (29425) 2013-02-07 7:58
the tower is very pretty so it deserves to be presented again. The new POV is very attractive with some repeated elements in the foreground.A bit pity that the tower is covered with a slight fog with a clarity bit worse than the foreground, but I guess this is the matter of taste.
Very well seen and captured,
amaryllis (33598) 2013-02-07 8:12
un beau format pour cette présentation dont j'ai déjà eu des aperçus de ce jardin si vert et entretenu, un cadrage très soigné, en regardant bien au départ fait comme un "z", une belle nature accompagne l'ensemble
Kielia (22913) 2013-02-07 8:22
I like your approach on this fascinating garden. It must be a gem! Your POV on this lovely place works very well and the wonderful light makes the image very attractive. My compliments!
josepmarin (57587) 2013-02-07 9:54
the strong daylight is controlled skillfully, and the image have a good brightness and a nice contrast.
The vivid colors of the garden, specially the bright green ones, the geometry of its terraces, and the gorgeous dome in background, create a very attractive composition.
gus72 (3719) 2013-02-07 19:43
Hi Ike !!
we have seen this temple before..... but from the distance. What I really like are the gardens...... so immaculate and so perfect.
the POV highlight what we see in the foreground.... nice green grass and beautiful trees and bushes.
Good choice to have a vertical frame.
Have a nice week end.
maria-v1981 (10814) 2013-02-08 0:42
I love the symmetry of composition. Garden lead out eyes to wonderful Baha'i Shrine Dome. Light and clarity are excellent alli the theme is so impressive.
Have a nice day,
adramad (35641) 2013-02-08 9:39
Sensational this vertical composition, allowing us to see the beauty of these gardens, crowned by the magnificent dome above the Baha'i shrine.
I like the game diagonal path, with its balustrade with vases, also the alignment of the cypress is a very nice touch.
Superb brightness and sharpness with beautiful colors.
Have a nice weekend.
nikkitta (13556) 2013-02-08 16:05
Very creative way to present this vertical capture of the beautiful gardens going up to the golden dome of the shrine
Well done, nice color contrast
Greetings and TFS
delpeoples (52731) 2013-02-08 22:12
Ciao caro Ike
Thankfully it is the weekend and I can relax a little with TE, I have not had much time lately because of my work. So apologise for the slowness of critiques. I remember your series on the Bahai temple and enjoyed it immensely. This photo is extremely good, beautifully coloured and with a superb light, particularly in such difficult light conditions. The gardens and the temple itself are exquisite.
kennyblack (4207) 2013-02-09 6:45
Beautiful and superb composition that forces you to raise our gaze toward the dome at the top, Sharpness specimen obtained from 'excellent light management and perfect setting. Thanks Ike's beautiful work and sharing.
The best greetings, have a nice day ... Marino

bayno (18342) 2013-02-15 9:24
amazing green tones and light...so good vertical frame and perfect dept and sharp....nice architecture too...good job...
ACL1978 (7467) 2013-02-15 13:41
Hello Ike - a beautiful dome here, but your clever composition makes it only an element of the whole rather than the sole focus. The angle you've chosen here, using the sloping grass and walls and repeating elements like trees and bowls, is wonderful - you've built a great entryway to the main subject. The eye is drawn upwards perfectly to meet the dome.
Israel really is an amazing place for sights from so many major religions, but I was unaware of a Baha'i presence as well. Thanks!
emka (73797) 2013-02-15 23:53
Hi Ike, beautiful view of the Bahai temple. Nice composition with the diagonals on the green lawns. beautiful palms and araukarias.
siolaw (38052) 2013-02-17 9:28
I know more about this Baha'i faith now! And they have quite an importaant center there! Good choice of POV and vertical framing to highlight this monument!
emilbo (22262) 2013-02-18 5:49
Un beau panoramique en hauteur et une excellente perspective. La place est magnifique avec une belle végétation et le dôme de toute beauté. Une image bien éclairée, bons détails et superbes couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon début de semaine,
ourania (27174) 2013-02-27 10:12
a very interesting and effective use of a long and narrow vertical frame to enclose a deep perspective of the lovely garden below the impressive monument. I like very much the rhythm of the garden landscape, the clarity and vivid colours of this picture which is very attractive indeed. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
jmdias (52918) 2013-03-23 2:50
marvelous vertical framing catching the patterns of this beautiful garden and the dome in the upper side. I liked the job of light here too. nice image.
elenimavrandoni (14241) 2013-03-28 3:01
Hello Ike, nice panoramic vertical of a very beautiful Shrine! Magnificent gardens and very impressive surroundings!
kato (11630) 2013-03-31 20:54
You're capturing well this architecture by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the beautiful shrine with unique shape and the lawn with green grass and ups/down. And, it's impressive in trees like a coconut tree at right side and trees like cup at center/right, too.
baddori (19157) 2013-04-07 0:59
The other side of recovery ... the park boundary and the great dome. Signs and mystery of architecture. "Section auerea" unmistakable.
fabbs99 (16079) 2013-08-18 12:02
The Baha'i Shrine looks great in the strong daylights.Nice light and beautiful texture of the shrine.Superb presentation, very sharp shot with an excellent light and POV. TFS.

Miguel82 (20950) 2013-10-28 7:31
A superb garden well maintained with many flowers, a brillant picture Ike, good pov including the monument, all the best, good afternoon
Noel_Byrne (21448) 2014-07-12 7:57
This is a beautiful place and your composition is just superb, taking in all of these levels of walls leading up has created such excellent depth and make the picture seem almost like a picture that would play tricks on the eye. The fine dome at the top with the sun lighting it perfectly is the icing on the cake.
Thanks as always
