I like very much this well balanced, panoramic composition that offers us an interesting view of the fascinating diversity in the cityscape of Jerusalem. Architectural features from different styles and eras blend intriguingly, giving us an important hint as to the character of this unique city. The details are excellent, the light pleasing and the colours natural and characteristic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

The way you took the scene is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the towers and domes. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

can you count up all the domes in this shot?
i had to stop counting!
there are so many smaller domes in the fg and way into the bg as well.
Too bad there aren't any large clouds, but thats not your fault.
fine post, I enjoy seeing the city like this.
enjoy your day

questi elementi verticali, di vari stili e di varie dimensioni, riempiono perfettamente lo spazio del cielo.
La luce era molto forte, ma è ben controllata e hai ottenuto un buon risultato.

A very nice and sharp photo that captures three of the many historically important sites in this ancient city. Very well done!

nice quality cropped picture of the Jerusalem Old City. This is amazing place to visit and explore and the history has marked it probably in every step and corner. The compilation of towers and domes make this cityscape very interesting and frankly unlike any other I have ever seen. I like also that there is so much greenery in between buildings which livens up the view.
Nicely taken! Thanks for sharing
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-06-21 7:36
Good and interesting mixture of architectural styles, I like those towers but not the satellite disc but I guess progress has to come whether we like it or not. Cell phone towers are now common in the Philippine jungles. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.

Lep pogled na deo grada i kule ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazana arhitektura i detalji na fasadama, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the city and the tower ...
Good work, beautiful architecture and details shown on the facades, beautiful colors.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

Another ( closer one ) view of old Jerusalem and the different building and domes well mixed with vegetation
Like to watch searching the buildings with the help of your note
So you are a futbol expert?
Te deseo un buen domingo

Another wonderful view over the city. A completely different perception than the modern architecture you posted recently. This is a fine collection of structures, and I really like the many shapes contained within this frame. Such amazing history to go along with the visual appeal, and you caught this at a nice time of sun to accent the entire setting. Detailed, sharp and clear for all to see. Well done! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Très belle présentation de la ville de Jérusalem. Il est plaisant de découvrir les différents édifices religieux qui se profilent sur la ville.
Choix judicieux de cadrage.
Vous avez raison, Ike, quant au genre de photo, vie quotidienne convenait mieux, mais avec un imac, je ne sais pas comment faire pour choisir plusieurs éléments.
Très bonne journée.
Kaisa71 (228) 2014-06-22 8:34
I´ve been pretty busy and haven´t browsed your photos since months back! This shot is interesting with different shaped of towers and churches. It´s also nice to see different architecture in good harmony. Green trees look nice between the white houses and bring a good contrast. I am planning of traveling Israel this autumn so your photos are the best "travel book" to me :-)
Didi (60588) 2014-06-22 8:36
Much better view than the modern buildings
Very good lateral lights
miumiu (6113) 2014-06-22 11:11
Wonderful view of old Jerusalem!
l like the warm colours and sharpnness of your zoom photo!
l asked from my mother once, (when l was searching for a holiday destination): "Would you like to visit Jerusalem?"- she said: "Who don't want to visit Jerusalem? It is a wonderful place!" This is true, as you presented with your photo too.
Absolutely stunning, so we have to visit it in the future!
photoray (13981) 2014-06-22 11:35
Fine cultural blend image, Jewish, Catholic, and Islam. It would be enjoyable to visit Jerusalem and stroll the paths among the historical architecture and meet people, etc.
Thanks for sharing,
jemaflor (98771) 2014-06-22 23:44
A good pov on the town with all these monuments, nice sharpness and light, well made.
delpeoples (58572) 2014-06-23 4:11
This is a very sharp photo, particularly considering it's been zoomed and cropped. The colours are crisp and the definition nice and sharp. What a beautiful viewpoint. An excellent shot.
dip (23888) 2014-06-23 4:32
this town is really full with towers and domes ,and even from all three biggest religions in the world,
a beautiful and very interesting panoramic view!
thanks for sharing,

Many compliments for this excellent panoramic view of the historic area of Jerusalem that gives the impression of being myself in town, despite the far distance from your point of view.
Don't forget to congratulate your camera!
siolaw (38292) 2014-06-23 6:50
That's a good general view of town with pleasant clear light and soft colours.
Cricri (120491) 2014-06-23 9:55
Quelle belle vue rapprochée qui inclus plusieurs éléments architecturales intéressant, bon format et lumière, une image qui complète celle sur le lien
Ici hier c'était la folie, avec la Belgique qui a gagné, je revenais de Corse, j'avais oublier le bruit de ma rue :-)
mirosu (16273) 2014-06-23 22:46
Excellent arrangement, superb view to Old-Jerusalem. Nice to see the church and the mosque in peaceful neighbourhood. All in excellent light & clarity. You have found superb viewpoint for this nice photo.

Hello Ike, How I missed this one. Splendid view of the Jeruzalem towers and domes. You packed so many of them in one shot. Spectacular view. In liken these small domes on the right side, like mushrooms.
WArm regrads MAlgo
PaulVDV (29527) 2014-06-27 23:53
You certainly know a great viewpoint to present us all these towers and domes nicely on a row.
A wonderful sight! Very inviting to explore the old town.
With so many historic buildings close to each other, the old town looks surprisingly green.
Best regards, Paul
ChrisJ (115493) 2014-06-30 22:44
I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Good contrasts in architectural styles with excellent color, sharpness and saturation. The triangular shaped roof at right reminds me of the Mevlana mosque in Konya, Turkey. Tfs!
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-07-03 8:18
This one is a real treat for the eyes.I love the domes and the minars.Great shoot to get the local flavour of the place.TFS.

Great panoramic view of Jerusalem Ike, the tops of the main monuments are visible high in the blue sky, regards
jmdias (65105) 2014-07-11 17:53
very beautiful view of these towers and monuments , a very beautiful collection. nice details of this so famous and special town.
Kielia (24077) 2014-07-19 6:55
the light here is lovely, not too sharp but illuminating the buildings in such a way that the forms are well presented. The sky has an attractive gradation and colour which contrast with the soft warmth of the stone buildings. A very pleasant image, my compliments!
adramad (46466) 2014-08-02 4:55
A wonderful composition, showing us in this panorama, a wide range of fantastic monuments, is one of the most beautiful images that I find the old town, great abundance of trees.
A colorful perfect very natural.
The image is very bright with optimal clarity.
Enjoy the nice weekend.
swapankumarroy (2847) 2014-08-10 1:27

Have a nice week.
