Taken an advise from the experts (TE: Paololg, and others) I went again to the same location and re-taken the Aviv-Tower night shot, this time used ISO80 to override noise .
Tallest tower in Israel, situated in Ramat-Gan, near the Diamonds-Center area.
68 stories high, 235m above ground, more than 250m above sea-level, work completed on 2001, inhabits offices and residential's.
In the WS see it with a diff. color on the rotating "crown" atop, a 5sec. exposure and a 20sec. exp. Images'.
RAW converted into JPEG, 10sec. exp., cropped sides. Used a small "Hama" tripod.
Location of the tower: 32.0833, 34.8037

Good capture of the Aviv Tower at night.
I like the vertical format you've chosen, and sharp image.

bella immmagine della torre che con le sue luci ben contrasta contro lo scuro del cielo.

Impressive tower very well taken, perfect light management and choice for a big vertical format, good sharpness, tfs.
paololg (31448) 2011-12-12 12:25
Yes dear Ike, this is perfect!
I have also appreciated the two WS that showing the excellent management of your camera. The merit is all yours, you've managed perfectly the photo quality, getting a night image without noise and with beautiful contrasts of light with the black sky of the night. I am really happy for this your performance. Congratulations!

siudzi (34141) 2011-12-12 13:53
This modern tower looks absolutely great at night. Very well executed image with good exposure and sharpness. Thanks for sharing!
sacimar (28671) 2011-12-12 14:43
the tower by night, well seen and well presented, light management is good and the building is really impressive, nice job,
pierrefonds (71077) 2011-12-12 14:46
The vertical format is putting the highrise building in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the Aviv tower. Using a tripod and a slow shutter speed have a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
adores (46363) 2011-12-12 15:35
You got a good result with this ISO. And the tower is really worth a night shot:)!A good photo, with very good exposure and pov!
divail (8334) 2011-12-12 19:39
L'architecture de cette tour est vraiment splendide et impressionnante. La photo est bien nette et la lumière est parfaite. C'est impressionnant.
jhm (159925) 2011-12-13 0:55
Splendid night picture, I like the enlightenment of the skyscraper.
A lovely contrast picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
rodgerg (55767) 2011-12-13 1:45
Excellent vertical blue hour with the light of the tower which arise very well in the blue/black of the BG. Good chromatic contrsat too with the another coloured light.
kordinator (22515) 2011-12-13 1:50
Excellent nocturne shoot
Great POV on fantastic tower.
Perfect exposure, excellent clarity, splendid light and colors.
delpeoples (59772) 2011-12-13 3:04
Your determination to go back and produce a better photo is both admirable and incredibly successful. The improvement on your previous post is phenomenal. There is almost complete lack of noise, the tones are strong, the exposition superb and the sharpness is immaculate. Congratulations dear friend, this is an excellent nocturnal.
Cricri (125818) 2011-12-13 4:36
Une magnifique réalisation et présentation de la tour lumineuse sous le fond noir, joliment cadrer par le feuillages avec un effet dorés, très belle version ici
adramad (49504) 2011-12-13 8:01
Superb image that we offer, with this beautiful vision of the tower in the night side, elegant lines and stand quite high on the black of night. Nice touch of golden color in the tree and the corner of the house.
Have a great evening.
Most cordial greetings.
peppe59 (14555) 2011-12-13 8:19
wonderful and fantastic picture of this big skyscraper lit, excellent management of light, very interesting.
snunney (106459) 2011-12-13 8:38
A splendid night time shot of this towering building. I like the way the tree is lit and the contrast it makes with the straight lines of the architecture. Excellent sharpness and no sign of any noise.
serp2000 (45828) 2011-12-13 9:44
Good idea to shot this tower once again (from a secret point, I think) by night. Excellent shot. Let me add my compliments to your collection! TFS!
claudeD (41544) 2011-12-13 12:44
Very fine picture of this amazing tower. Excellent sharpness and very good light mangment. I like this pic very much.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
francio64 (39888) 2011-12-13 13:52
eccelente gestione della luce e ottimo sharp per questo night shot.
Spettacolare la torre, bellissima la foto.
batalay (40385) 2011-12-13 21:08
I remember the tower from other photos, but the light management here had to be tricky. You've done a very good job in this depiction. The different versions showing the changing light at the top is dramatic, just as your note is informative.note.
jlbrthnn (76039) 2011-12-14 6:36
I discover this impressive architectural realization. The deep darkness brings to light the skillfully centred tower. It is a good idea to have to use the foliage. The eposition is excellent, as the neatness. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Royaldevon (43325) 2011-12-14 13:02
It is interesting to oneself, as well as viewers, to retake a shot. This one I think presented slightly different light problems which you managed admirably. The highlighted tower creates a far more dramatic image, standing out, as it does, against the inky sky.
I like your inclusion of the branches which adds just a little colour and softness to the rigidity of the tower.
My warm regards,
RhodieIke (11744) 2011-12-14 13:08
Hi Ike, What a corker this one, fantastic colours, shinning like Pearls. Well done, Tfs, Have a good Tuesday, Cheers Iain.
clic (18486) 2011-12-15 4:55
Thanks for your kind words Ike
Most impressive is the lighting technology evenly applied to Tower from "head to toes" that makes it appear as an outstanding eye-catcher by night.
Backlit leaves add a pleasing decoration to the luminescent "chimney".
amaryllis (37039) 2011-12-15 6:53
un très beau cadrage pour cette haute tour que je verrai bientôt peut être, une belle architecture, une lumière bien gérée
raszid62 (18515) 2011-12-15 7:15
Excellent shown impressive tower, shown late at night. Beautifully lighted building. Beautiful colors and perfect quality photographs
בוקר טוב. אקסלנט הראו מגדל מרשים, הראו מאוחר בלילה. הבניין מואר להפליא. צבעים יפים ותמונות באיכות מושלמת. שלך.
emka (106662) 2011-12-15 23:22
It is always worth taking advice from friends :). Fantastic night view of this high tower. amazing comntrast with the black sky, superb sharpness.
gus72 (3719) 2011-12-16 8:47
you nailed it......and you deserve all the points that you get for this image.
The contrast between the dark sky & the building is Fantastic... and the photo is so sharp.
macjake (72491) 2011-12-17 15:14
hmm...this guy looks familiar :)
nice to see the black hour version too.
reminds me of being in Las Vegas at midnight, the bright lights still provide you with ample illumination.
love the various blue colors.
enjoy your day
sandpiper (6788) 2011-12-18 3:07
Success and a great result. This is what its all about learning and then practice. Its a super looking tower and you've captured it perfectly I think in this shot. I like the inclussion of the tree on the left.

I like the vertical format here,
I like this POV.
Very beautiful place and tower, good night shot.
All the best and a Happy and Healthy New Year 2012,
jmdias (68615) 2011-12-30 1:07
very nice image. I liked the shapes and lights of the building standing so well against the black sky. nice pov and colors.
ruisc_pt (11090) 2011-12-30 1:16
IMHO the noise is not so noticeable as it might appear.
I found the long duration exposures blurry than the shortest ones.
Have a great 2012.
UlfE (14641) 2011-12-31 0:43
An excellent night shot. The dark sky is a perfect backdrop to the illuminated tower. The inclusion of the tree is great. TFS and Happy New Year!

A very curious tower.
Good vertical frame and colors.
Nice night photo.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2012-02-01 9:55
The tower during the night, well captured and well presented. The photo is well managed, and the building is very impressive, nice job !
fotka (4779) 2012-02-01 11:24
It is a nice shot of Aviv-Tower at night. The bulilding has very interesting architecture and you show it here well. The photo has great contrast, colors and sharpness.
mirosu (16273) 2012-07-02 9:57
Pefect vertical panorama. This night alternative is excellent, better than the "day light" one. Great POV/DOF, light and collors. Well done.
thebest (4276) 2012-09-14 22:18
What magnificent architecture in this tower - I love the sharpness of your photo - brilliant lighting for a night time shot.
I love the position you have taken the shot from capturing that lovely tree with the Autumn tones against the bluish white of the tower.
Congratulations on a great shot.
Didi (60590) 2012-11-02 11:46
Tis is a good one with a nice lights management.
ourania (51079) 2013-01-06 11:23
a wonderful night shot with superb lighting and sharpness. I like very much the luminous colours and shapes against the velvety night sky. The exposure is excellent and effective in all of your pictures and the framing is original and so befitting to the theme. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,
kato (11630) 2013-05-17 8:01
Ypu're capturing well this building by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the cylindrical high building with a lot of windows. It looks like modern architecture with high technology. You manage this night scene by a good light control well. And, the observatory of the highest floor with purple light draws out a good impact in this image. It's very clear about WS#1.
mcmtanyel (28962) 2013-06-15 21:56
This is just exquisite! It was well worth your while to lug around the tripod, what sharpness! Did you let the camera decide on the exposure settings?
maloutim (9641) 2013-08-29 5:54
Well, I can't help but critiquing this one too !
What a great contrast between the illuminated building and tree, and the dark night sky !
Great management of light and sharpness. I suppose you used a tripod ?
This seems to be one of your favorite subjects to shoot in Tel-Aviv. I won't comment them all today :-), but I will stop by again when browsing through your gallery.
All the best.
NorthernLight (2383) 2013-10-12 1:49
a luminous image. A tower shines in the darkness. A beautiful night shot of a striking building.
Very nicely photographed with great colors.
A wonderful weekend to you

Beauty is your night photo with this illuminated tower, good use of the photo vertically gave a good sense of time. love it.
