Bonjour, cher Ike,
Deux prises de vue, deux réussites.
Très bonne idée d'utiliser les faces argentées pour reproduire la ville qui s'amusent à déformer par endroits les reflets.

sono un amante dei riflessi e questo panorama è proprio bello.
Ottima anche la resa dei colori, preferisco questa versione a quella del ws.

As I can see I missed some of your excellent photos but I will caught up later.
Excellent mirroring, superb light, colors and clarity. I like the diagonal arrangement. I hope I'll not disappoint you with my BF photos, because I will concentrate on spring forest flora but also mixed with some -non flora- photos.

A fine capture of this interesting reflection, which is neatly divided into compartments by the window panels. Well lit with good colours and clarity.

Ha! Ha! My friend, home at last!
This is lovely.
Most photographers, myself included, love reflections. This one has a good diagonal composition and has the added advantage of appearing like a square puzzle, where all the squares have been placed correctly and the puzzle solved! It is easy to tell that the weather is fine and the early shrubs are in colourful bloom.
Have a lovely Sunday,

The reflections on the Windows are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the reflections. The quality of the light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day. Have a nice day.

I was just thinking about where I can find a building that would give me good reflection of Las Vegas. Good capture of the reflections with good details for a reflection. Well done, tfs.

Hello Ike, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting reflected postcard, very well composed and captured this beautiful image with good sharpness, nice color and light. Excellent and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Always a pleasure to see peoples hometowns, there feels to be a closer connection between photographer and image when it has that personal connection. Even better when the creative side is expressed such as this. A wonderful take on the city as seen in the reflective surface, creating a unique visual. A good section too, which is colorful and bright. The glass panes help give a literal, graphic result. Always makes me wonder also, how many people walk by this and never give it a second thought?? Well observed and composed to make for an interesting an new take on your city. Hope you've had a nice weekend. Take good care.

Ike, what a nice way to present your town..a great reflection, colorful and interesting!!
enjoy a sunny day!!
mcmtanyel (28936) 2014-05-04 20:50
This is really pretty. If it were not for the distortions introduced by the glass panes, I could be fooled into thinking this is the real thing and not a reflection. Very pleasant, TFS.
PS. When I find the piece of paper we got from the tour organizers, I'll send you a message, thanks.

I don't think we've seen your city of Tel Aviv in a while have we?
Nice to see it come back in your gallery.
these photos are always exciting to capture, they're fun and eye catching.
i like that you have the 4 rivets on the bottom left, and the 4 rivets at the top right.
have a great day

An impressive mirror and a good idea to take advantage of it for a picture. An interesting cityscape and attractive colours.
adramad (49470) 2014-05-05 7:14
Superb reflexes, which slightly altered forms, very artistic way, lovely foreground with the varied woodland, some in flower, which adds great charm to the buildings we see behind.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

Great reflection of your town in this modern Mall building.
Love the colours of the spring flowers and growth, looks like a Jacaranda tree in full blue bloom.
UlfE (14641) 2014-05-05 10:30
A very good reflection photo. I like your POV A Little bit to the left. I note that there are Beautiful blossoming trees in your city. TFS and have fine week!

Lep pogled preko staklene fasade ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana fasada i refleks na staklu, lepe boje.
Dobra ideja i realizacija, lep trenutak.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view through the glass facade ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated facade and reflection on the glass, beautiful colors.
Good idea and realization, beautiful moment.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.
ourania (51079) 2014-05-05 11:47
a playful and delightful way to show a part of your city, a wide and accurate reflection. I like very much the mix of clear and elusive details that engages the viewer in the study of this scenery. The contrasting tones of the trees add some very agreeable touches, the light has given a summery feel to the colours and the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Givatayim appears quite sympathetic, so beautifully decorated of green, reddish and most-unusual violet foliage.
I can't see the many 'attractions' of Yarkon River though, and to compensate for that little omission, I intend to post soon something you will like!!
Quite an enchanting mosaic post.

Deux belles présentations, quelques distorsions par ci par la, la couleur des fleurs égaye la vue, belle image sur le lien aussi
Gigidusud (21247) 2014-05-06 14:54
Splendid town reflections! I like the colorful trees on FG and the beautiful light. Well seen and well done!
emka (106608) 2014-05-07 0:00
Interesting reflection in big glass walls. Are they made for the joy of photographers? Beautiful composition. I like these trees. The purple is maybe jacaranda but I do not know the red one.

fascinating composition with fantastic reflections, great urban view, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-05-08 1:19
it looks almost perfect this reflection of the town in the glassy tiles. Nice idea and well executed. I like the composition which gained more interest from the geometrical lines dividing the cityscape into small sections. You also achieved good colors in here and the red bush adds eye catching contrast.
Thanks for sharing
nikkitta (17068) 2014-05-08 8:58
I am a bit late Ike, but found this reflection capture plenty of interest and well composed with flowers at the front
Like the way you presented, divided by the mirror panels
delpeoples (59772) 2014-05-09 1:36
Ciao dear Ike
A very artistic and well thought out photo. I like how this is all reflection and we can quite clearly see how it has been reflected in the glass skyscraper. The details are beautifully captured, and I particularly like the purple Jacaranda trees and what an Australian would call an Illawarra Flame Tree - the red ones. I wonder what you call them?
Anyway, a lovely shot, have a happy Friday
Miguel82 (27752) 2014-05-19 19:29
Great inspiration Ike, the reflection of Givatayim on a glass-wall, good sharpness, bright hues, greetings
jmdias (68605) 2014-06-19 11:23
the color of the flowers and the shapes of the buildings created a marvelous mood in these distorted version.
abmdsudi (57632) 2014-07-04 7:49
A town scene viewed by a keen shooter showing the diff perspective when each pane can show a different view and move just a foot either way you get a completely different set of distortions. Isn't it wonderful the way glass plays with reflections, patterns, distortions and reflections. This is particularly clear and colourfully crisp, i prefer your Ws photo with more distortions but looking at this reminds me of those children's puzzles where you slide little squares around inside a frame to try to get them all in the right place and this looks as though you've deliberately muddled them all up, It is wonderful and funky shot, Well spotted in the first instance, Smashing!!

A nice reflection of the wall and street with its architectures, beautiful background of deep blue sky, very nice effect, well cleaned city, good idea and well captured.
with deep regards and have a nice weekend, good luck,
swapankumarroy from India

another great reflection! Reflections are fascinating photo themes again and again.
In this picture I especially like the colors.
A great weekend for you
berek (50508) 2014-09-18 21:06
Good morning Ike,
I always love this kind of reflection picture. a clear reflection of this picture. The colors of the flowers are wonderful.
silah (2798) 2014-12-14 12:14
Very good capture that has beautiful reflections on the wall of building. It looks like a huge mirror. Colours looks so nice too. TFS, GREETINGS, Salih
boa (7663) 2015-09-10 11:45
Use reflections for a picture is a good idea. You got two pictures in one. Here we got a small glimpse from your town, there are also small colour splashes from the trees. A good shot, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

In Australia the jacarandas flower in October & signal the need for students to knuckle down and finish studying and assignments for exams. And of course May is also Spring in the northern Hemisphere. The flaming red colors of the adjacent tree provide a perfect opposite. Tfs!
