From this morning stroll, a view north over Ramat-Gan, a neighbor town: 32.08, 34.82 on the map, moment before a rainstorm approach.
I was hoping for a rainbow, Saturday morning – but reconciled with a great contrast of the sunny foreground and dark backdrop's.
16:9 aspect ratio.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Merci de nous servir de guide pour découvrir cette ville qui a tendance à s'élever de plus en plus.
Le ciel gris ardoise fait ressortir magnifiquement l'ensemble de la composition.
Très bonne journée.

The view down is clever. The composition is well chosen, with excellent combination of light and colors and perfect deep depth of field. I'm glad to see the well lighted toll buildings in BG because they contrast nicely with the dark grey sky. The overall composition with the bright city houses and the green foliage is very good. Have a nice weekend.

Too bad for the people under the dark clouds...but seen from your place the spectacle is great!
The buildings skyline reflect perfectly the sunlight and give value to your beautiful image.

Excellent panorama, un cadrage parfait, les couleurs joué excellent, clair et lumineux, une image de réussite, bien fait.

The light is excellent to bring out the detail in this excellent city panorama. The line of high rise blocks make a good focal point whilst the framing trees offer some pleasant contrasting colour. Very good clarity.
jmdias (66403) 2012-11-10 5:01
I like this kind of light with a dark shadow ahead and the elements in the foreground well iluminated like we can see here. nice urban details to enjoy.
mauro61 (52857) 2012-11-10 5:19
lo sfondo grigio contrasta con la luminosità del FG.
La città esce bene con i grandi palazzi e le piccole case.
Miguel82 (27648) 2012-11-10 7:34
This is an excellent view and perspective from a hill
Good light, we can see the roofs of Tel aviv
in the background as you write it there is a storm coming
Excellent sharpness, fine colors and contrast
Bon week end

ourania (48838) 2012-11-10 9:18
I love the brightness of this view and the intensity of the atmosphere before the storm that has already announced itself in the background. Depth and sharpness are superb, lighting and chromatic contrasts are great. We get a lot about the character of the city while savouring the wonderful decisive moment. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-11-10 9:26
Great timing and capture of the contrast of weather condition. I always find those conditions very appealing from the artistic point of view. Very well done, tfs.

Un fond sombre qui fait resortir la ville baignant sous une belle lumière, c'est un contraste magnifique même sans un arc en ciel :-)
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-11-10 12:11
A nice panoramic view of this city with excellent light and colors showing all the details. I like the sharpness and the gray sky makes it more beautiful.
jcpix (13930) 2012-11-10 13:10
That is good contrast for sure, I always love what a good storm can do for a photo opportunity, gives that sense of almost impending doom. Good exposure and balance here Ike, good timing on your part!
Hope you're having a good weekend!
raszid62 (18515) 2012-11-10 13:19
Magnificent panorama of the big, modern city. Amazing contrast - the sun brightly lit buildings and dark, stormy sky. Excellent sharpness of this composition.
הצהריים טובים. נוף מרהיב של העיר הגדולה והמודרנית. ניגוד מדהים - השמש מואר בניינים ושמים כהים, סוערים. הרכב חדות מצוין. .
josepmarin (58359) 2012-11-11 6:07
I like the great variety of architectural styles and its excellent graphical combination in the city, that you offer us in an effective framing.
Such a dark and threatening sky creates a strong chromatic contrast, and I guess the curtain of rain in background.
A beautiful work.
Nicou (146902) 2012-11-11 6:20
quelle vue superbe ces bâtiments modernes ces tour blanches qui ressortent et ce fond bleu-gris avec la belle végétation quelle iamge.
Bravo et amitié

You have been granted of a hole in the clouds that creates the "wow" in town, especially when seen over the grey backdrop.
I appreciate those rigorous verticals on high buildings as well as the overall feast for the eyes!
mkamionka (39201) 2012-11-11 13:13
I like very much the great contrast of the well lit buildings as set against the dark dramatic sky. Also the green vegetation adds a very nice touch here. Very well done!
pajaran (63520) 2012-11-12 1:53
Lep pogled na grad ujutru ...
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazan grad ujutru.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
A nice view of the city in the morning ...

Good content and composition, nice city shown in the morning.
Have a nice and successful day, all the best in the new week that started.
adramad (47714) 2012-11-12 12:52
A wonderful composition, in which the great contrast between the menacing dark sky in the background and the light illuminating the skyscraper is fantastic, beautiful colorful with this alternation of green trees.
An image with good light and sharpness. A superb POV. Well done.
Silvio1953 (148613) 2012-11-12 13:24
Ciao Ike, splendid light on wonderful skyline, great contrast against grey sky, lovely composition, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
adores (46079) 2012-11-13 17:40
These are always fantastic moments!
It's perfect with the sun light on the buildings - such a good contrast! Well done!
Kielia (24077) 2012-11-14 9:01
this is another fascinating view on the imposing cityscape of your hometown with a dramatic atmosphere. The composition is excellent and the management of the difficult light is outstanding. TFS!
macjake (70519) 2012-11-14 22:27
more cool looking views of the city.
the dark grey skyline is the key here, it gives such a beautiful backdrop and contrast color.
as for the rainbow, its hard to find isn't!
maybe next time :)
well shot scene
UlfE (14641) 2012-11-16 10:51
A marvellous photo. What a fantastic lighting with the strong lighting on the city and the very dark grey sky. I love the contrast, the sharpness and detail. TFS and have a nice weekend!
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-11-20 5:15
I've said before, my friend Ike when the sky is in this situation, the conditions are ideal for photography. The contrast is between absolute light and absolute dark. The skyscrapers reflected the last rays of light before erupt the storm.
Have a nice evening,
npecanhuk (75770) 2012-11-28 14:47
Beautiful urban & architecture picture!
I love the contrast between the darker and brighter elements!
Horizontal format, chosen pov, composition, black & white borders, colors, sharpness and exposure truly pleased me too!
TFS - congrats,
jemaflor (100223) 2012-12-12 11:03
An interesting contrast with this light on these buildings and the grey sky in the bg, well made, tfs.
thebest (4276) 2012-12-22 16:17
Excellent view of the high rise buildings & the city spreading out to the horizon.
Beautiful light over the city especially nice against the dark sky.
Hope Christmas celebrations are in place for you.
We are off to Adelaide in the morning.
Noel_Byrne (32544) 2013-01-13 9:36
It is always so pleasant to capture the grey skies and rain in the distance, while the foreground maintains such beautiful light, this is a really nice capture. The skyline of the city is beautiful too, and I relly like the lush greenery in the foreground.
All the best
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-01-28 2:22
A picture with nice warm and bright colors.
The cut up and/or below makes the picture
nice wide. Composition is alos very good.
The dark sky is a nice extra: it gives
the picture an extra contrast and that
makes the picture extra exciting.
fritzi007 (11573) 2015-04-07 11:33
sehr guter Kontrast und schöne Farben, gut gemacht!
ChrisJ (116676) 2016-06-10 7:49
The threatening blue black sky heralding a possible thunderstorm makes a great backdrop enhancing the graphic elements of the sunny fg. Good sharpness and a superb elevated vantage point. Tfs!
mcmtanyel (25654) 2016-08-01 19:49
This was a nice catch with half of your visual field in the sun and the other half in the rain. It's also an excellent view of the modern city.
