You added the charm of countryside in this wide portrait of Givatayim that appears as a large city, seen from a bird's eye!
You did a good job despite such difficult lighting conditions.

a very pleasant and interesting juxtaposition of the busy city and the quiet shady garden. I like very much the way you have combined the two themes. The city looks like a luminous silhouette, its details are not important, its symbolism of busy urban life is effective. The foreground is relly delicious, I love the colours, the relaxing shade, the play of light and the atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Jolie percée à travers les pins noirs d'Autriche (sauf erreur), la ville blanche s'étale devant nous avec bonheur.
J'aime bien le contraste entre les deux.
Image originale et bien présentée.

Very creative to divide the city using the trees, it looks like paintings in a panel. I like the lighting and it has good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Now this is a difficult shot with such contrasts of light and shade, close and distant, light on white buildings!
I really like the dappled light in the f/g; it adds such immediate interest and offers so many different windows through which to investigate the b/g.
I suspect there is a little oe in the central portion but it does not spoil the overall effect of the shot.
My warm regards,

una composizione complessa, ma ben eseguita, la cadenza dei tronchi interrotta dal panorama costituisce un bel gioco.

Using the trees to frame the buildings of the city is a good idea. The distance between the two items is giving depth to the composition. The colours of the trees are contrasting well with the colours of the buildings. Have a nice day.

You're capturing well this landscape by a good approach and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the big city view through the pine trees. It's good at the color contrast between clear FG and blurred BG. The light is managed well.

An city between the pine trees, you play excellent with light and shade.
You create a panoramic view in background.
Very well done, TFS.

Hi Ike,a very original way to take the city between the trees,a very difficult choice of exposure,the buildings are a bit overexposed but was very difficult to make different without loose the trees details and colors,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Bravo et amitié

The photo looks like a jigsaw puzzle in thumbnail. I was intrigued. And even upon enlarging the photo, it still reminds me of a picture puzzle. This is a unique photo, using a different POV to give a different aspect on your city which we have seen before in so many different ways.
Have a good Sunday

Now this is a bit of a different view looking out over the city, I like it! It has kind of a "watcher in the woods" feel about it, being able to see portions through the forested open spaces and giving a new twist to the urban detail. I really like the contrast and combination of the city landscape and natures elements. I imagine this is a another peaceful and enjoyable place for a walk, getting both a view of the city and the softer sights and sounds of nature. Nicely arranged to bring the two together and convey a sense of the surroundings while still being close to the action and liveliness of the city. Have a pleasant evening.

Have a great vacation! Good framing with excellent sharpness and graphism. Punchy light contrasts and a superb high pov overlooking the city of Tel Aviv. Excellent shadow detail & I like the wide angled panoramic crop. A fine glimpse of the city through the trees. Tfs!

sehr gute Perspektive und Kommentar, gut gemacht!
Gratuliere dir zu deinen Forschungen mit Google-map, es hat auch mir sehr geholfen, ich informiere mich oft mit Google-map, in Obdach war es Ortszeit 15:24, seit der neuen Umfahrung (Tunnel)ist es dort wirklich sehr ruhig!

The pine trees provide nice windows to view the city. It was a good idea, though I suspect the light management of your camera optimized for the foreground, not the background.
