a good photo on this view and on this famous mount, good contrast and Fg to give depth at the photo, nice light and blue sky too.

interessante inquadratura, hai preso due serie di mura su due piani diversi.
Ottima composizione, la torre è piacevolmente decentrata e si gode di un bel panorama.
Bel controllo della luce, non facile in questo caso.

Pleasant at looking with the green environment on the slope.
Also a lovely silhouette of the buildings in background.
Lovely composition, nice presentation too through the excellent colours and sharpness.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Although not taken in ideal lighting conditions, we get a very good view of Mount Zion.
The alternation of lighter and darker spots (rocks and greenery) makes a pretty sight.
Good composition in different horizontal layers.
Best regards, Paul

a nice view of the famous town. I liked the use of the ramparts in the foreground and these details of the church and the gardens. despite its fame this town hasn't so much "tourist icons" in our mind like many others. TFS.
rbassin (20242) 2014-08-16 2:20
une très belle vue, bon cadrage avec le mur à créneaux en premier plan.

A nice view of the Mount Zion and its town, with lush green and a deep blue sky line - a great composition. Your article is short but well informative, very well maintained contrast, sharpness and color balance.
with deep regards and enjoy a nice weekend.
NorthernLight (2383) 2014-08-16 3:18
great colors, great sharpness and one more beautiful view of one side of your country.
And again I am amazed by the many green spots there.
A very beautiful sight!
Have a good weekend
ourania (37288) 2014-08-16 3:31
this is a very interesting view, the lighting conditions at the moment of the capture were not so favourable and the shady area, along with the absence of many modern elements, makes the view look suggestive and timeless. A very good idea to use the pattern in the foreground as a border that adds reference. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

I like the panoramic frame and the layered effect. The Basilica on top of the hill placed slightly off-centre makes a fine focal point. The crenellations of the city wall make an interesting frame and introduce a touch of graphism.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2014-08-16 4:38
The castle is helping to frame the fortress. The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the architecture. Everything is so calm and clear.
abmdsudi (47526) 2014-08-16 5:31
Wonderful city skyline seen from an elevated viewpoint with the eye popping basilica positioned at the third as strong focal point. There's lot more interesting features around to complement, good contrasting colours between blue and lush greenery, and you have done well with exposure for it does look pleasantly balanced throughout and your camera works is spot on, Congrats. TFS
pierrefonds (60990) 2014-08-16 5:44
The distance between the wall and the basilica is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the buildings. A good managememnt of the light which does not hurt the ouput of the colors. Have a nice day.

I will let a higher authority than me critique this:
"Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth, like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King." (Ps. 48:8, NIV)

Given the excellent depiction deprived of modern artifacts, I have the impression of a voyage back in the time machine for a pilgrimage to 'The city of the living G-d'.
Miguel82 (26865) 2014-08-16 8:16
Mont zion appears with its basilica in the bg Ike, good sight from the fortifications, good light, neat picture, enjoy your we
saxo042 (37724) 2014-08-16 8:55
The merlons create a good frame for this picture with many interesting architectural details. A fine contribution.
photoray (13719) 2014-08-16 14:36
Interesting view of Mt. Zion from the Yemin-Moshe quarter. with castle walls at the top left, then the church towers rising in the distant horizon, with the slope covered in green landscaping.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Ike,a very elegant capture of this mount with the beautiful basilica on the top,but not a lucky choice of the moment,the light were very very terrible,you manage in the best way the exposure,but in the sun could be beeter.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Avec ces créneaux en premier plan quelle vue sur cette fameuse ville avec ces mur ces édifices qui ressortent quel panorama et ensemble merveilleux.
siudzi (34141) 2014-08-17 9:25
An interesting view on this amazing hill. The old walls and buildings built a superb subject for the photography here. Well seen and taken. TFS!
Cricri (111977) 2014-08-17 11:34
Belle vue sur la Basilique près des fortifications, les créneaux en avant plan, une image intéressante et bien présenter;, merci pour les liens
jcpix (13820) 2014-08-17 20:34
A beautiful view in its own regard, but the inclusion of the foreground rampart with it's "checkered" pattern makes it all the more interesting. The deep green colors and blue sky work in harmony, bringing together land and sky to compliment the beautiful Mount Zion and the basilica that sits atop. Clear and concise, and for a relatively minimal scene, you've put together a very nice arrangement of subjects. Enjoy the new week. All the best.
Royaldevon (33785) 2014-08-18 0:10
Seeing your title was exciting, like turning back the clock, to Biblical Times, for that is my reference with Mount Zion.
The inclusion of the f/g wall not only sets the scene but makes a very important link across the scene to the distant castellated wall.
This is a strong contrast with some of your other photographs of Jerusalem. Here, there is no evidence of skyscrapers, giving a quieter, more serene atmosphere.
All the best for the new week,
cornejo (36329) 2014-08-18 8:57
Hello Ike, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting view of this ancient place, nicely captured in this interesting picture with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

A nice panoramic view of Jerusalem from the Haas Promenade. Beautiful old architecture. Wonderful contrast between the green park and city. Good job.
nikkitta (17018) 2014-08-19 12:51
Not the perfect light, but a good panoramic of this part of Old Jerusalem with the Mount Zion at the back
Like the part of all walls used a kind of frame at the front
Well done, regards
macjake (62256) 2014-08-19 14:32
I would imagine there are alot of hot sunny days like this in Isreal? :)
is this the norm?
looks like a not-so-good day to be taking photos, but what can you do?
then again, here in the Vancouver region we get so much rain and overcast skies...
lots of history here i would figure, this post and your newest post with the Olive branch/tree monument are a good combo together.
thanks for this one
eldancer1 (32734) 2014-08-20 7:31
Looks like this basilica is surrounded by forts. Great strategic location for a basilica with wonderful view. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
COSTANTINO (60541) 2014-08-20 22:08
Hello dear friend
thanks for sharing with us this beautiful postcard
taken from the castle and giving great depth
to this photo
good composition in different horizontal
have a nice day
ChrisJ (105419) 2014-08-24 1:47
I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour, saturation and density levels. The indented patterns in the fg wall nicely frame the bg. The basilica on the horizon makes a fine focal point. The red roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!
danos (91040) 2014-09-02 13:34
nice the panoramic view of this section of the Mt Zion,with the old-town walls of the foreground and the trees,to adds depth and perspective in the scene.The notable edifices on the backdrop are the eye catching of the image.
papagolf21 (91370) 2014-09-07 1:27
Bonjour, cher Ike,
L'on regrette de ne pas pouvoir admirer cette composition en version large, cela doit être encore plus impressionnant et merveilleux.
Très bonne réalisation.
