You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the winter pond with reflection and winter light. It's tasteful for green's depth with different tones. And, the silver grass at left side draws out a good impact in this image.

a lovely picture, a simple composition full of little wonders. I like very much the way you cropped this photo including narrow stripes of the two banks just to add reference and frame the reflections. The play of light, shadow and natural colours offers so many beautiful details, so many smaller inages that make up an intriguing interpretation of the natural scenery. A very pleasant and relaxing sight. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Lovely composition showing some beautiful reflections on the surface of the water. I really like the way you have capture the light playing on the far bank of the river and then some shadows. Delightful presentation Ike.
All the best

This kind of scene is relaxing. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the reflections on the water. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

This is a beautiful photo. The reflections on calm water are excellent, the light, clarity and colors perfect. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Well done my friend.

Before taking a look at your link, my eye spotted the reflection of palms...and I thought there was something familiar. :) I like what you've done with this composition, using the surrounding banks of the river to naturally frame the top and bottom portions of the frame...almost makes it seem like more of a lake.
The soft touch of sunlight on the surface of the water is a great touch of soothing and warm atmosphere. A lot to take in visually, both right side up, and upside down... a neat effect. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take good care.
UlfE (14635) 2013-10-19 23:55
Really great reflection photo. I really like the very calm water of the river where you could see every detail of the trees on the opposite side of the river. The inclusion of the grass in the foreground is very nice since it adds depth to the scene. But what I like most is sun ray seen on the right hand side that come through the foliage of the tree. Even if you photo is beautiful I am quite sure you could not fully capture the beauty. I could really feel how nice it was to stoll along the river. TFS and have nice Sunday!
eldancer1 (24799) 2013-10-20 6:45
Even ordinary scene can be beautiful when viewed from different perspective, and of course with a good photographer to record it. Nice catch of the reflection with good details. Well done, tfs.
Gigidusud (13229) 2013-10-20 9:58
Beautiful reflections with nice colors and splendid light. I like it!
shevchenko (19051) 2013-10-20 19:47
Clear to show the reflection on the smooth water surface, nice relaxing view by the river, good color and exposure, sunlight and shading add nice effect to the view too, distinct photo, good shoot.

Sorry, my today's green smiles were run out.
The interesting thing is that even in the December, the trees and grass are still in green. Tel Aviv must has a very mild winter.
PS: I will take your advice if I ever want to post another flower picture. Thank you very much.
Kielia (22913) 2013-10-21 8:31
you have very well realized the artistic potential of these wonderful reflections thus presenting a very well composed image. The play of shadows and light is indeed fascinating. The moody colors make the Image very attractive. My compliments!
elenimavrandoni (14197) 2013-10-21 20:16
Ike, I'd say this is a perfect reflection and a great combination of natural colors!!

Selmik (2945) 2013-10-22 5:41
beautiful photograph, admired by reflections in the water and how light and shade *play* with each other all over.
josepmarin (57465) 2013-10-22 7:09
a good framing for to catch the beautiful reflections of the landscape on the river, and the fantastic play of light on the ensemble.
The quality of the composition is high, I like.
adramad (34993) 2013-10-22 10:20
Indeed the image is rich in light, shadow and especially in a splendid reflections, which form an image of great beauty.
Good brightness and sharpness, very natural with a colorful and enjoyable.
Very well done. I like
Have a nice day.
clic (13922) 2013-10-22 12:22
From now on, you will have to content yourself of such nice reflexions adorned of golden sun rays when you go in late december on the banks of Yarkon River;
it's much too cold for a lady kayakist to row by!!
Don't get any false ideas!
mesutilgim (79446) 2013-10-24 3:35
One of your "best" s in your gallery ! Perfect pov and amazing reflections.
TFS and best regards
NorthernLight (1337) 2013-10-24 5:01
a world in the mirror. Sometimes - when I look at those reflections - I think of fantastic stories where the hero enters a parallel world through a mirror. An interesting thought.
Now I've seen several of your reflection pictures and I like them all well. This one I like because the reflection shows beautiful bright colors. Very well captured!
Best regards from Sweden
jemaflor (80076) 2013-10-25 4:05
So lovely light with these perfect watermirror, perfectly presented with a large place for the water.
mcmtanyel (10139) 2013-10-26 9:45
Very nice reflections. I read a bit about the Yarkon River and understand that it was polluted a lot toward the end of the 20th century. Is it back to health now? Of course, in my search, I was hoping to find out that this is the same as the Kebar or Chebar Canal in Tel-abib that is mentioned in Ezekiel, but I am not even sure if that Tel-abib is the same as modern day Tel Aviv. Hopefully, we'll find out next May!
COSTANTINO (50774) 2013-11-04 9:35
I agree that in this shot there is
a great play of lights and shadows

whole composition very natural
th depth is amazing and the green colors
are the best
Royaldevon (25964) 2013-11-24 1:37
Good Morning Ike,
A shot which makes the 'little grey cell' work as Poirot would say!
From your well taken shot of the reflections, we can compose an image of the original.
I actually love the shadows on the surface of the water and the sunbeams. These are special additions.
Have a lovely Sunday,
jmdias (52055) 2013-11-30 0:06
nice use of these reflections. I liked the central strip and because this I would cut off the upper and lower parts of the compo, anyway only a matter of preferences. nice job.
