A spectacular view I remember of my visit of Haifa. The site is famous and absolutely worth the visit.
From your POV we can admire the beautiful gardens that are landscaped on different levels.
The location of the shrine overlooking the broad avenue and the district makes the sight very impressive.
Best regards, Paul

Intersting POV and composition.
I like building.
Photo is unsharpen :(

The plunging point of view is excellent; I like the lead-line offered by the as they direct the eyes toward the golden dome and then onwards up the broad avenue. Great colour contrasts and fine clarity.

The length of the garden is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the garden and of the architecture of the Golden Baha'i shrine. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have anice day.
Cricri (121309) 2013-03-16 5:25
Une vue qui permet d'apprécier a la fois le jardin dans ces moindres détails, le dôme, l'avenue et le quartier, le tout sous une sublime lumière, très belle présentation

Wonderful panoramic view from a high point, which gives us a great perspective on the beautiful gardens and the dome, the avenue that we see in the background increases the DOF of the composition.
Ideal brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I love it.
Enjoy the weekend.

Hello Ike. The view from above on the beautiful Haifa and the golden shrine is impressive. The garden next to the shrine is the most beautiful garden architecture. Fine composition and very natural colors and light. Informative text.

This place is really beautiful and I see it gives many opportunities for great sights. Like this POV a lot. The view has many interesting elements but still looks very classy. Very well done! TFS.
Miguel82 (27646) 2013-03-16 12:41
A superb view Ike, good work
I can appreciate the work of the gardener
A very well designed place
Fine colors, good exposition
jcpix (13930) 2013-03-16 14:42
No matter how many times I've viewed your pictures of these gardens I'm still impressed. This may be similar to a previous shot, but that certainly doesn't take away from the beautiful and well cared for grounds, as well as your thoughtful composition. This positioning gives a touch of a birds-eye view of the space and elegance below, I really enjoy this kind of perspective. Beautifully exposed again, I'm glad you've posted another photo here! From a distance, the open space of the garden converging towards to the shrine and continuing up the street looks to be in the shape of the Eiffel Tower. :) Have a wonderful day.

Ciao Ike, great POV on fantastic dome, excellent perspective, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio
carlo62 (50914) 2013-03-17 1:35
spendido il pov che ci mostra questa bellissima panoramica. I giardini sono meravigliosi e la costruzione mi ricorda il mausoleo di Teodorico a Ravenna.
Royaldevon (40374) 2013-03-17 2:15
Good Morning Ike,
Oh, wow, this viewpoint is quite spectacular in giving us an overall view of the city. We plunge from the heights over gardens and domes, as fleet as a bird!
I like how you have attracted us into the m/g with the dome and then used the proceeding road to complete the journey.
I cannot agree with Fis2; I find the shot perfectly sharp.
Have a lovely Sunday,
lousat (93714) 2013-03-17 2:35
Hi Ike,maybe thes best pic from there in your gallery talking about the perspective and the point of view,magnificent rich composition whit excellent colors,a bit oversharpened but no problem....have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
jhm (155358) 2013-03-17 4:03
70 year ago was here almost nothing, now a wonderful big city.
You took these picture out of the hight, with a lovely perspective and depth image.
In centre of the picture the dome is wonderful taken.
Excellent composition, nice captured, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
ourania (47858) 2013-03-17 4:31
this is a very impressive and captivating view over the magnificent gardens, the shrine and the city. I love the sweeping depth and the brilliant colours that are so vividly defined and enhanced by the splendid sunshine. There's so much to discover all over this rich and rewarding composition. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

That's how the different deities lodging in Paradise can see this Haifa's busy scenery adorned of lovely gardens giving life to Dome that keeps an eye in town for law and order in this modern city!
Many compliments to FZ 35 for the excellent depiction and to to you for having reach so high without getting dizzy by altitude!
ChrisJ (116108) 2013-03-19 1:57
A superb high pov with goo sharpness and the gold domed church featuring prominently. Good sharpness and marvellous use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point at the top of the image. I like the 2 fg courtyard gardens leading to the building. Tfs!
siolaw (38292) 2013-03-19 5:00
Another nice POV from the place, this one very dominating and giving a bird's eye view.
Vertical framing and sunny colours suit the scene well
claudeD (39873) 2013-03-19 10:43
very fine view over Haifa with a very good composition and showing much details. Excellent colors and sharpness. Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
delpeoples (58842) 2013-03-19 22:47
Hello dear Ike
I remember this temple well from your previous shots. The high POV is lovely and I like how you have completely cropped out the sky from the image. There is a wonderful graphism from the gardens and architecture and I like the vertical frame.
Didi (60588) 2013-03-20 3:55
Very good dominant point of view who gave me a vertigo :)
eldancer1 (36343) 2013-03-20 9:22

Quelle magnifique photo et tu as choisi le point de vue idéal pour nous montrer ces magnifiques jardins et le sanctuaire. Beau format vertical, belle végétation et merveilleuse harmonie de couleurs.
emka (100959) 2013-03-20 20:30
Hi Ike, Fantastic view of the dome of Bahai shrine and wonderful gardens. You found very good POV, the view is breath taking. I once talked to the bahaist and liked the ideas of this faith, specially nonviolence.
COSTANTINO (66601) 2013-03-22 7:22
one of the best postcards remitted to us
a great description of Haifa city,
excellent lightness and sharpness
make us enjoy and look carefully
this scenery,nice pov
thebest (4276) 2013-04-05 17:42
Just look at the magnificent grounds surrounding the Shrine - it looks amazing.
You were high up when you took this photo & you have been able to show us the landscaping & the avenue of houses to perfection.
Excellent POV & I like the natural colours despite the bright sunlight.
baddori (20151) 2013-04-06 0:56
Significant known and impressive perspective. Photographic excellence and a document of Israel the center of religious tolerance and integration, .. if peaceful. GF
amaryllis (37039) 2013-04-07 10:54
Une superbe vue en plongée sur ces beaux jardins que tu nous as fait decouvrir avec tes photos et ce dôme dore et une arcitecture sublime
macjake (69831) 2013-05-01 12:25
perhaps not the sharpest photo you have posted, but its the pov and subject matter that win me over :)
its wonderful to see the city from this type of vantage point, and to also include the Baha'i Faith, a friend of mine here locally is of that faith.
smart city view!
enjoy your day
kato (11630) 2013-05-21 2:03
You're capturing we;; this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the sacred sgrine with the golden dome and the beautiful courtyard designed well in front of shrine. And, it's impressive in the surrounding greenery and houses with red roof, too.
jmdias (65603) 2013-06-14 6:56
another marvelous view of this fantastic garden and building. I liked these details and the inclusion of the urban landscape we can see here., TFS>
