Morning on the old Tel-Aviv port when waves were pounding on the pier.
A relatively new promenade built on the old platform, nowaday many recreation activities taking place on: Fishing, cycling and as I usually do - taking a nice stroll along. A WS attached. (A distinguished place from the Jaffa old-port which located south of Tel-aviv).
Location of the pier: 32.10, 34.7738

Is there really any fish can be caught in such a raging, turbulent water? I can see if there are anglers. Nice way to relax.
These lanterns create an interesting pattern in the sky.
צהריים טובים. האם באמת כל הדגים יכולים להיתפס כגון מים, משתוללת סוערת? אני יכול לראות אם יש דייגים חובבים. דרך נחמדה להירגע. פנסים אלה יוצרים דפוס מעניין בשמיים. שלך.

Lepo mesto i trenutak ...
Lep jutarnji pogled, trenutak sa velikim talasom, ribolovcima i setacima, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast, perspektiva i prikaz lepim bojama.
Lepo mesto sa setnju, odmor i ribolov, moje cestitke na ulovljenom trenutku.
Lepa fotografija u radionici.
Prijatno popodne i sve najbolje.
Nice place and time ...
Beautiful morning view, the moment a large wave, fishermen and walkers, a good composition.
Good time recording, contrast, perspective view and beautiful colors.
Nice place to walk, rest and fishing, my congratulations for the captured moment.
Beautiful photos in the workshop.
A lovely afternoon and all the best.

On a pas besoin de pêcher avec de pareilles vagues, le poisson doit arriver tout seul sur le quai. Jolie prise de vue captée juste au bon moment et la scène est bien animée. Bonne qualité d'image et excellent rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes amitiés,

A very well lit shot of this port taken on this bright sunny morning . I like the way the waves are breaking to form beautiful white foams. Nice play of light and shade. Nice activities by the people like fishing, walking and cycling. What a beautiful place to spend this nice morning.

Looks like a very rough sea to go fishing in and those fishing poles are so big. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Great lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Ciao dear Ike,
nice image of people in relax, some fishing, who with the bike, who simply walking, but this picture inspires a beautiful atmosphere of serenity. Great big wave in the WS, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!

The capture of the power of the waves is an asset to the composition. The length of the pier is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing the action of the people on the pier. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Fantastic and beautiful composition of daily life with framing of marvellous surroundings. So many fishermen and many people walking, running and extrime waves. Great catpured this moment. Wonderful and amazingly executed image with fantastic POV. Thanks for sharing. Perfectly well done. I like it very much. Great photo job.
All the best,

Good Morning Ike,
Wonderful movement from the crashing waves. Did you get spray on your camera?
I love how the edge of the promenade leads into the shot and divides the anger of the sea from the totally contrasting leisure activities.
Have a good day,

I've your email read, these morning no problems.
Nice picture with the big wave against the pier.
You chose a good angle this gives depth and perspective.
Excellent captured and composed.
Very well done, TFS.

Beautiful waves and people fishing
fine colors and sharpness
josepmarin (58325) 2012-05-03 5:32
this scene of the fishermen in the pier makes me remember a similar image in the Galata Bridge of Istanbul.
I like the dynamism of the waves breaking on the pier, and the vitality of the people who goes fishing or walks along this place.
The image has a great light and a few beautiful colors.
mauro61 (52855) 2012-05-03 11:38
buona la prospettiva tra sportivi e pescatori con il mare minaccioso che penso crei qualche problema.
Ben gestita la luce e buon taglio,

As I saw on the workshop, fishermen don't have to angle to catch fish on pier: all they have to do is catching preys that splashing waves throw in thier hands!!
Nice perspective on pier created by the streetlights forest and the outside view of structure.
Some take seriously this activity to the point I read last year on a sweater: "Shut up and fish", while others socialize.
macjake (64768) 2012-05-03 20:01
who'd have thought that tall lamps could make a photo look so good!
the tall curves, the long fishing rods, it makes a cool looking scene, and the viewers eyes can't help but move up that way.
I like it.
danos (94310) 2012-05-04 0:36
brave the fishermen as try from this bridge to fish with the splashed waters to wet them.I like the presentation from all these people that enjoy to stroll on it, inhaled the fresh sea air.
Have a good day,Danos
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-05-04 3:49
The view is found to describe both the pier and rough seas and fishermen. The peaceful life, is pleasant to see. The light, colors, sharpness and depth are good. Bravo.
Have a nice day
chrisvek (7001) 2012-05-04 6:42
Wow.What an amazing shoot with details.Perfect definition and lightning.Superb POV.Great result.

bayno (18344) 2012-05-04 8:20
great shot, the scene is pretty lively and waves make it even more dynamic, very nice framing and lighting, beautiful vivid colors and a good definition...nice one...
PecoBud (3824) 2012-05-04 13:27
Very powerful shot of waves and fisherman. Looks like a hard way to fish, but fun none the less. Excellent POV and DOF showing this pier and the daily life that occurs there. Wonderful colors and great light management with good clarity. Great Job Ike!!
TFS..........Your Friend from California........Buddy
*****sorry I ran out of smiley, but really wanted to comment on this really cool photo!!
delpeoples (56726) 2012-05-04 16:08
Hi dear Ike
The waves here look very rough, but I like how you have frozen this moment in time to demonstrate the sea's power. I alos like the succession of vertical poles, both lamp poles and fishing poles. Good sharpness and colour rendering. Do you ever fish yourself? It is an exercise in patience, but is very calming for the stress - almost as good as photography :)
Warm regards, have a good Saturday
Cricri (115557) 2012-05-05 10:38
Belle animation sur le quai, a pied ou a vélo, profitant du beau temps et de l'air de la mer avec le claquement des vagues qui ne semble pas déranger les pêcheurs!!
amaryllis (36455) 2012-05-08 1:44
malgré un très beau ciel bleu, la mer était déchainée avec ces grosses vagues qui tapent contre le pont
superbe effet avec la présence de personnes sur ce pont
sevy (15367) 2012-05-09 5:53
I like this piece of life showing many people doing different activities and with the breaking wave adding a lot of dynamism to this view.
Simple, easy to read and efficient.
ourania (41292) 2012-05-10 8:34
a wonderful composition which skillifully divides the frame between a peaceful daily scene on the pier and the force of the spectacular waves against the pier's wall. There's a very pleasing perspective which also opens the view on the pier where people offer movement and colours while lamp posts and fishing rods have a playful graphic impact. Lighting is excellent, colours and atmosphere are delightful. Well done and thank you!
All the best,
adramad (43153) 2012-05-13 14:37
And again in these pages, after a few days holiday in the Canaries.
Beautiful image, great animation showing the pier of the harbor with all these people, dramatic force of the sea and magnificent moment captured just as the waves break on the quay wall.
A bright day, which gives a nice color.
Have a nice day.
jmdias (61358) 2012-05-20 12:22
I liked the graphic effect of the lines of these lamp posts and the big splash, good sense of opportunity to get the exact moment. TFS.
baddori (20113) 2012-08-30 4:38
Un bel ricordo da noi il mare cosi.
Niente vento e calma piatta.
La vista delle onde sulla diagonale della piattaforma.
Le canne da pesca, il mare porta a riva crostacei e novellame.
fabbs99 (17129) 2012-09-30 11:37
Thats a very nice shot of the waves pounding against the pier.The sky is blue and the morning walkers are around. Sharpness and clarity are perfect. Excellent composition with some lovely colours coupled with nice light management and presentation.TFS.
Have a great week ahead
kato (11630) 2013-10-02 5:21
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which there are many residents doing fishing, cycling and srolling on promnade faced to port. And, it's also interesting in street lamps in a row on promnade. And, waves which rolls in to a bank draw out a good impact in this image.
jcpix (13846) 2014-10-07 13:49
Piers generally offer up a lot of photo oportunities, even without looking into the distance for views over the seas. This picture captures both aspects in a great manner, and sure gives us a good sense of natures power. Perhaps not in full force, the striking waves are still a dynamic feature here, while we are also able to understand the easy-going atmosphere and activity. It sure does look like a nice day to have been out enjoying the sunshine and mist, and even better with camera in hand. :) Enjoy the new day ahead. All the best.
Friendly wishes from Az.,
mcmtanyel (19759) 2014-12-12 21:33
Excellent vantage point, good timing. The photo shows the attack of the powerful waves and the people going about their business almost oblivious to it. very nice DOF.
abmdsudi (50554) 2015-07-18 1:54
An impactful shot no less, you have very good eye and what a precise timing! a great action shot well frozen showing the power of wild pounding waves creating a superb contrast against the surroundings. The anglers add extra colour and liveliness. Well done, Congrats
ChrisJ (109584) 2015-07-27 7:26
The street lights or rather lights along the p[ier, look like they are direct competition with the fishing rods! The red and burgundy colored shirts of the men at left contrast well against the blue sea and sky. Good sharpness and a nice decisive moment capturing the wave smashing against the breakwater. Tfs.
