Tel-Aviv view towards the NW.
Since I took this through a sealed-glassed-window, I must confess that quality is not as good as I'd want this to be - it's has a bluish texture, and small dust-dots on the window almost noticeable.
POV from the 33rd floor of the Azrieli square tower.

this familiar view of Tel Aviv. I like a view from Jaffa too. Fine cityscape. TFS!

Hi dear Ike
Great view of this interesting city. I think the quality is pretty good considering it is shot through thick glass. The colours seem to be telling us just how hot it is outside. I hope you were in air-conditioned comfort in your office. Excellent sharpness and framing.

Despite the difficult conditions this shot makes a good cityscape. It is well composed with the tower blocks more or placed in a row on the diagonal and drawing the viewer's attention across the frame from bottom left to top right. Good detail.

The quality is not bad at all considering you took the picture through the thick glass. Nice view of part of the city skyscrapers. The colors also look well.

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing with precision the details and colors of the architecture of the buildings. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Il centro del mondo e speriamo della normalizzazione economica di parte del medio oriente.
Moderna e con capacità imprenditoriali e diplomatiche.
La veduta è impressionante per estensione e per modernità delle architetture .

Hi my dear Ike
Sorry for my late reaction, as I was a little away for shoting another festival. This is nice birdview shot for the great Metropolitan of your great country.
So tasteful color and light management way as usual. Thanks for sharing with your finest work and have a beautiful Sunday, Best regrads.

Hello Ike, Great cityscape of Tel Aviv. I was just in San Francisco last week, and met someone who had just returned from Tel Aviv. He said it was a great city and spoke highly of the outstanding restaurants there. I can tell you that I cannot discern that this was taken through glass. Very impressive. How have you been? I always enjoyed your shots and comments. I am going to start posting a bit again. Just returned from Europe as well, so have some shots from there too. Regards, Roger

Interesting panorama of tel Aviv. Modertn houses in a bit bluish c olours, probably the effect of the glass. Seems endless. Impresive view, good sharpness.
have a nice Sunday

I just saw this HUGE city from above, (GoogleEarth)and managed to find -132 Menachem Begin Road- to see the round tower you were on for that superb overview on the white city by the sea!

I must thank you for your visits. How are you? It is always very nice to hear from you, Ike.
As I see the town though your eyes, I can see that your town must be a paradise for architects.
Beautiful white city and its spirit are well seen and covered in the special format. I personally don’t mind the bluish tone that you speak of at all. The view is simply magnificent. I can see another tower going up in distance. It is very rare for us to be able to have a view like you are presenting for us all. It is through a spirit of TE that we are able to enjoy the world through personal view of the observer. I thank you Ike once again for this wonderful panorama over your part of the world.
With my very best and friendly regards,
Have a very pleasant and productive week,

as a fan of city scape, i will always enjoy and be curious in viewing these photos.
the building in the middle, the one that looks like a box...thats a very strange construction style - think about it - how often do you see a building looking like that - not too often. I'm also surprised by the lack of glass. lots to see here, i like it :)
ourania (51079) 2013-07-02 9:54
a fascinating cityscape from a superb elevated point of view. The glass window has not caused too much compromise in depth and clarity. The view is vast and there are many details to enjoy even in the dark streets below. Your framing is excellent and has surely helped in bringing forth the character of the city. The bluish hue offers an oldish charm:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
PS I hope you've enjoyed your cup of greek coffee. I would have wished you "stin iyia' sou" (to your health) but you have probably finished it by now:)
