old Jaffa near the port is a very busy place and your picture describes it with superb sharpness, clarity and depth. You've included a small part of the ground just to give a taste of daily life in your presentation. There's a fascinating mix of architectural uses and styles and all the colours look lovely in the warm and pleasant lighting of a spring afternoon. The smooth blue sky provides a wonderful contrasting and relaxing backdrop. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Looks like a pretty busy and popular place with all that traffic. Good composition, colour and lighting.The blue sky with the bell tower rising up at the back gives added interest.

Good Evening Ike,
The colourful buildings on the right, with their projecting wooden frames are extremely eye-catching. They link nicely to the similarly coloured roof and ultimately to the strongly positioned bell tower. Good light and sharp exposure.
For me, the traffic is less interesting and the composition still works well if it is cropped. However, you may feel that it is important to the context of the shot.
My warm regards,

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Merci pour les différents liens permettant de mieux comprendre cette présentation, au demeurant très réussie.
Une image qui reflète bien une vie quotidienne.
Très bonne soirée.

una vista molto ampia, si vede bene la città vecchia, ormai integrata tra le costruzioni più recenti.
Bella presentazione di un luogo, per me, poco conosciuto.

Hi Ike,very nice and rich composition whit a great contrast between old and modrn architechtures,perfect moment whit the best light for the best colors,a lot of cars there too as i can see,looks to be in Milano..ehehe...have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Although the cars may be a bit distracting, they still display what I'm assuming is a busy part of town...in which case they would be a fitting inclusion to the overall sentiment of the area. The composition here is really neat, I like how the foreground framework extends out from the building, which is the first thing that caught my eye. That then led me directly through the image from right to left, using the tower in the distance as the focal point. I really like how this arrangement naturally flows. The lineup of lamps along the left side also enhances the converging aspect of the composition, nicely observed and well planned! The deep blue sky makes for some solid contrast to the neutral and reddish orange tones. Very well taken and presented. Thanks for sharing the look towards the old town. Have a great day.

Beautiful colors and a nice composition in a sharp image. What more can one ask for? Maybe a few cars - but wait - there are cars in the picture, too! Perfect!
kato (11630) 2013-05-02 17:29
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see a row of houses, a lot of cars which has parked and the tower which stands on the hill. It is interesting that an old building and a new building are intermingled, too. The whole is harmonized beautifully by a good arrangement and excellent bright color combination.
pierrefonds (65796) 2013-05-02 19:10
The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
mirosu (16129) 2013-05-02 20:26
I like this view over the busy road to the dominant church tower on the hill. The view to the church is nicely framed by the houses on the right side. The light and clarity is perfect, colors very nice. I also like the inclusion of cars. Excellent arrangement.
Once more wish you a nice weekend.
krzychu30 (15512) 2013-05-02 23:31
superb shot,that documents well the old architecture of Jaffa.But as much as the architecture and composition itself I like this special,afternoon light you captured.It affects really nice the color scheme of the image and let the colors appear to us so warm and pleasant.
Have a good day

jhm (152164) 2013-05-03 3:03

We see the tower in background but also a nice view about these area.
Real a cityscape with the cars and a lot buildings.
Excellent captured, nice presented.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
snunney (98241) 2013-05-03 3:51
A very busy place by the looks of it. Difficult to avoid the cars but you have minimised them the best you can to produce a successful and attractive composition. I like the focal point offered by the tower and the pleasant light and colours. Some very interesting and attractive architecture to be seen here. Thanks for sharing.

Beaucoup de style d'architecture différentes, belle vue sur le point intéressant de la tour, les liens complète bien cette belle présentation
raszid62 (18515) 2013-05-04 0:01
Lively, full details of the image. So what is not there, dense buildings of the old town, the high tower on a background of blue sky, lots of cars. Image I really like. Excellent quality and color.
הצהריים טובים. פרטים תוססים, מלאים של התמונה. אז מה הוא לא שם, בניינים צפופים של העיר העתיקה, מגדל הגבוה על רקע של שמיים כחולים, הרבה מכוניות. תמונה שאני מאוד אוהב. איכות מעולה ובצבע. שלך.

This looks like a very busy square on the FG. Probably a place to leave your car before venturing into the smaller streets of Old Jaffa.
Beautiful presentation of this district with its differences in relief. The bell tower definitely is a landmark for miles around.
Best regards, Paul
adramad (45294) 2013-05-06 10:42
Excellent POV of this ancient city, the picture we can see a beautiful view with old buildings and other more current, the tower at the very top of the hill is a nice element in this beautiful corner.
A beautiful sunny day, which gives a wonderful range of beautiful colors.
A perfect sharpness, well managed with this lighting.
I wish you a good evening.
delpeoples (57590) 2013-05-06 17:38
Sorry I have not been on TE much lately as we have had Malgo emka here as our guest in Sydney. It has been wonderful.
This city of Jaffa seems very charming from your photos. I love the old architecture and the rich colours. You have achieved an excellent definition and depth with superb lighting.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful week
clic (16937) 2013-05-09 6:31
Bad weather on the rise; but who cares since a "shy sun" makes the tower appear triumphant and the buildings colors pop out beautifully over greyish basckdrop!
Perfect verticals too!
UlfE (14641) 2013-05-12 10:12
Very impressive photo. Superb depth and sharpness. The lighting is also very attractive and the buildings realy stand out against the dark sky. I also guess that your timing when taking this photo was very good and that the weather was completely different a few moments later. I really enjoy your inclusion of the man to the right. A small detail but it makes the scene much more vivid. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!
serp2000 (44013) 2013-05-12 10:29
Good evening, Ike,
Thanks for memories. Very interesting place, an every stone in your country means something. well seen.
mkamionka (36250) 2013-05-24 5:54
this reminds me a bit Los Angeles. The town apparently seems to have an interesting atmosphere and yet it is really hard to present it in an eye catching way as there are no spectacular pieces of architecture or even if there as some nice motives like the old tower they are scarse. I do think that you managed to capture a bit of this atmosphere here.
I think I would like this area very much as I loved LA.
Have a great weekend,
jmdias (63912) 2013-07-04 2:48
excellent angle that makes our eyes go to the beautiful tower ahead. nice details of the urban daily life and architecture.

Good morning Ike,
what a view and fantastic picture this busy street with cars and background beautiful bell tower and what a beautiful clear sky.
ChrisJ (113137) 2015-09-05 15:45
The bg tower at left looks like a good spot for a birds-eye view of the city. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed with splendid color and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and reddish orange building at right. Tfs.
