The Baha'i golden-dome Shrine dominating the town skyline. Here is a picture from within the garden.
Built on Mt.Carmel, my previous post show an inclusive view.
Location on map: 32.8146, 34.9873
*** 1. I had to crop a bit from lower part and from the right side corner, due to some disturbance.
*** 2. It was super-bright day, so I recon it is a bit over-exposed.

Good article about the place and composition, well demonstrated.
Good evening and all the best in the new week that started.

The shot is well composed with the red gravel path making a useful lead line toward the cupola. The golden dome, although slightly over-exposed, makes a great contrast with the lovely blue sky. The image has good colours and sharpness.

The trees are framing well the dome. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the dome. It is clear and sharp. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
UlfE (14641) 2013-01-07 8:38
A very nice and well-composed photo. The dome is well postioned a little bit to the left and your inclusion of trees and bushes make the photo very attractive. I note that the lighting was a bit strong but on the other hande there are very few dark shadows. Also very nice blue sky. TFS and have a fine week!

A beautiful composition with a superb POV that shows in the foreground the beautiful garden with its variety of shrubs and trees, the magnificent dome emerges sumptuous on treetops.
Very good light and color in an image full of sharpness and detail.
Have a nice day.

Belle prise de vue et merveilleuse végétation. L'endroit est magnifique et le dôme qui s'élève dans ce beau ciel bleu est superbe. Une photo de qualité bien composée et beau contraste de couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon début de semaine,

hello Ike ,
As you say , just at the edge of the overexposure . Nevertheless , this is a pleasant and very well composed picture . I like especailly how the dome emerges from the greenery , and the contrast with the blue sky .
SNOOP_Chan (4201) 2013-01-07 10:55
Hello Ike, a really nice image here. Sometimes it can be very difficult to shoot whenthe light is so agressive as it was in your shot. Some parts look a bit overexposed because of that but the contrast is well balanced.
P.S. I just now read the note, it is a beautiful photo nevertheless.
Kamilutka (8095) 2013-01-07 13:38
I like this photo mostly for good composition and contrasting colors. The white parts are slightly overburned but this is minor detail. Good sharpness.
ourania (31999) 2013-01-07 13:38
the light is very bright indeed but the picture seems to have great clarity, the character of this important place immerges well and no detail seems to have been lost in the luminous parts. The composition is well balanced and the view has great depth and very beautiful colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day tomorrow,
nikkitta (14858) 2013-01-07 13:39
Like the color, some days may be so bright
Well chosen POV to show the dome framed with the green vegetation
Thanks for watching my photos
All the bet and TFS
Why you know spanish?
jcpix (13686) 2013-01-07 14:34
Another lovely photo of these grounds Ike, the more you've posted the more I want to visit...looks like a beautiful, peaceful place. The blues and greens are strong but not overpowering. Nicely composed to highlight the dome but also showing the foreground path leading up. As you mentioned, slightly over exposed, but appealing none the less. Thanks for sharing these gardens with all of us.
delpeoples (53167) 2013-01-07 20:43
Ciao dear Ike
I love your series on the Bahaí temple. This POV is completely different from your previous ones. I also see that you've managed the light alot easier form this angle, the colours are stronger and the definition is excellent. Lovely work and oh I would love to walk in that beautiful garden.
Cricri (107236) 2013-01-07 21:49
Une visite plus rapprochée du jardin et du temple, j'aime les détails de l'entrée, le vert des arbres, un endroit qui doit être plaisant a visiter, peut être un jour moins chaud :-)
claudeD (33175) 2013-01-08 1:16
very fine view of this garden and interesting architecture. I like the fresh colors and good clarity.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
jhm (139952) 2013-01-08 3:42
Cropping is absolutely no disturbance, I would a little bit more cropping the half vase completely do disappear to the rightside.
I like square format this do me think as child the old pictures, 9x9 format
A splendid panoramic picture with a lot depth and perspective.
Excellent captured, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Happy New Year!
I've never imagined Israel is that green. Contrast with white Shrine, the garden is very inviting indeed.
clic (15130) 2013-01-08 8:25
An unusual architectural "bud" sprouting out of garden greenery creates the magic of this bucolic scenery as well as a good visual balance compared to the small stairway and the elaborate lamp post.
serp2000 (40330) 2013-01-08 8:25
I remember this point of view, another good presentation of this famous Garden. Very nice photo. Thanks for your letter. Happy New year to you too!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2013-01-08 10:20
The small alley and the dome are cleverly placed among the trees. The light, colors and sharpness are very good. Bravo.
Have a nice evening
PaulVDV (22657) 2013-01-08 14:17
I remember this Shrine of the Báb in Haifa from my visit in 1979.
The composition is very attractive with the path at the right bottom leading to the dome slightly off center and towering over the green gardens.
Good depth of field.
Best regards, Paul

Have a nice day
Royaldevon (30145) 2013-01-10 4:15
Good Morning Ike,
Back to Israel, today.
The light looks to be strong but you have dealt with it very well. There is a pleasing balance in the shot, from the urn in the f/g to the dome in the b/g. The vegetation softens the angular lines and produces an almost rural effect.
Have a lovely day,
jmdias (56059) 2013-01-11 5:27
nice image showing the bautiful shapes of this dome peeking above the trees. I liked the details in the lower part too. nice job, with good framing, light and sharpness.
josepmarin (57801) 2013-01-11 10:09
I like the luminosity and the quality of the colors of this image, its great sharpness and the structure of the composition, with the elegant architecture of the dome appearing between the green vegetation of a few beautiful gardens.
A nice work.
rudiceuppens (555) 2013-01-14 4:20
A beautiful place ( park and dome) in Israel. Good composition and colours. Maybe a little over exposure (inevitable on this beautiful sunny day),
mkamionka (30694) 2013-01-25 7:50
beautiful architecture and a lovely garden.
May be some parts of the picture are a bit overexposed but it is always tough with such a strong light.
I would love to have the problem of having too much sun where I live now...
Have a great weekend,
fabianoleite (9551) 2013-02-02 6:54
Beautiful dome, trying to hide behind the trees. The composition was nice, with good elements of green and of concrete. Clear sky, well shown. Congratulations!
maria-v1981 (10814) 2013-02-04 4:43
Here i like especially this wonderful Baha'i golden-dome Shrine and these colours. You show us a magnificent architecture with a lot of details. You manage the light very well despite the difficulties.
Have a nice Monday,
Miguel82 (24127) 2013-02-15 12:46
A beautiful park , vivid colors, excellent pov
Many details to watch out : monument, plant species and architecture
Sharp shot, your note is useful also
mcmtanyel (14117) 2013-07-28 19:24
Welcome back to TE! I like your composition. I see many interesting levels. You have framed the dome very well with the trees.
