I never loved those too colorful buildings, but I do love your photo very much. Excellent depth and beautiful colors. I like the symetery. I hate this kind of architecture, but you managed a very nice pic out of it. Well done.

You really have excellent architecture in Israel.
I have seen great excamples of that in avigurs shots. And now in yours.
Symmetry and angle work very well. So well seen and captured.
I love this this kind of architecture. Perhaps because I can see some similarities between this modern building and Bauhaus style; the combination of round and square shapes, the combination of white color and colorfull details...

This is a very nice and effective shot. The colors are very good adn work well against the pure blue sky. I like the symmetry here too, but I wish you had cropped just a tiny bit from the left to make it more perfectly symmetrical. There is also a very small tilt to the right here which could be quiet easily fixed in Photoshop or the like. Good shot, interesting buildings. I agree with Avigur about the buildings more than I do Olli ;)

I've seen very colourful buildings before and thought them terrible. I disagree with many people here in that I think that this building is uniquely attractive in its own right. Your photo of it is good, the wide angle making it quite imposing, and you've got the balance of the composition pretty much spot-on (OK, a slight tilt maybe), but I think I would still like to see this in real life.
What the builders have got right that so many over-the-top buildings have not, is the colour-scheme and variety of patterns. They've used gradiated palates of rainbow colours that complement each other locally, though they use a wide range in total, concentrating on blue to red and red to yellow. The middle of these, purple and orange are a common combination of rich tones (think of the purple and gold of many imperial and majisterial garments and decorations).
Wonderful in my opinion, though it may look drab and awful in twenty years time if they're not careful!
