Your other pictures are very nice, also these picture is again very attractive.
Maybe I would the green tree remove in corner above, this is personal.
Excellent composition, colour and presentation be superb.
Lovely picture with these houses in foreground.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

A colorful cityscape, well seen, good sharpness, the colors are beautiful.

The striking length of the tallest tower immediately attracts. The shot is bright , clicked in the morning hours of 8 am. Most of the buildings have been painted grey or white. Is this done deliberately to reflect off the brightness of the Sun, in this part of Tel Aviv?
I like your idea of including the part of tree in the shot. This brings a little contrast and appeals the eyes.
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-07-14 3:18
The Tel-Avivi Tower looks like a giant surrounded by old and low buildings around.I like this juxtaposition and visual contrast it creates.
Magnificent architectural shot in superb quality and nice,well-contrasting colors.
Have a nice sunday
siudzi (34131) 2013-07-14 3:19
Good shot of this great cityscape! The modern tower looks here superb and I'm sure is very characteristic for the city. Lovely blue tones work very well with the white building facades. TFS.
pierrefonds (59370) 2013-07-14 4:54
The distance between the branches and the building is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the architecture of the highrise building. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2013-07-14 5:20
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the whole of Tel Aviv city and the skyscraper of a cylinder type. It's an interesting contrast with low buildings. And, it's impressive to be able to the Mediterranean sea at right side, too. As an addition, good contrast for tower of day and night in WS!
mirosu (15126) 2013-07-14 6:08
Do you know when I was 1st and when last time in TA?
27.3.1972 and 13.4.1972, quite long time ago! That time I could not find building like this over there. Excellent view to this tower building. The houses around give a good idea how toll is it. Superb shot, excellently framed in vertical format. Many thanks for your nice comments. Greetings, Miro.
Nicou (127852) 2013-07-14 7:22
quelle image et compo superbe vue quelle tour ronde et belle toute bleue de verre et ces branches sueprbe compo et vue splendide.
Bravo et amitié
macjake (59970) 2013-07-14 7:49
Yes....we have seen this building from you a few times and its always welcome on TE.
I like how it towers above all the other buildings as if its letting the entire city know that ITS in power and control! Interesting too, to see the city architecture. Nice shot
ourania (35080) 2013-07-14 10:38
you found a great point of view for another attractive presentation of this impressive tower with the city at its feet. I like the off-centre placement of the tower in the vertical frame and think that the pine-tree branch more that scale brings good balance and chromatic contrast to the composition. The picture is very sharp and vibrant, it's amazing how many details you've captured in this mercilessly strong light. I love the blue of the sky; the sea horizon to the right of the tower is a surprising and delightful detail. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
chrisvek (7001) 2013-07-14 13:30
Great capture with details and lightning usage.Interesting and unique atmosphere.Very nice POV too.Well done.
All the best
rbassin (19481) 2013-07-14 13:36
une magnifique prise de vue, une architecture audacieuse toute en verticalité.
Le contraste est intéressant avec la ville basse.
fabbs99 (16813) 2013-07-14 13:43
The Aviv tower stands pretty tall against the normal buildings in the vicinity.It has a great circular designs and a perfect aqua blue colors.I like your well composed photo. Very good sharpness, and excellent color and light management. TFS.
carlo62 (37258) 2013-07-14 14:53
composizione bellissima, il panorama è impressionante, un ambiente quasi monocromatico.
Interessante l'inserimento dell'albero contrapposto dal piccolo angolo di mare.
npecanhuk (69146) 2013-07-14 15:08
Beautiful modern skyscraper!
Interesting and attractive urban & architecture picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition truly pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your week,
mcmtanyel (15587) 2013-07-14 18:26
Wonderfully composed photo with excellent DOF. That pine branch is very appropriate where it is, don't let anyone convince you otherwise!
Sonata11 (33526) 2013-07-14 19:25
Impressively height tower. Wonderfully capture and presented. Awesome snapshot. Perfectly well done. Tfs. Barbara
jcpix (13726) 2013-07-14 20:23
I think you know by now how much I've enjoyed your pictures of this tower, so it's always a pleasure to see a new one...and one that is now my new favorite! :) This shot really put is size into perspective, even more so than any of the previous ones. The tight framing and inclusion of the cityscape below for scale has really done wonders for this point of view. I also the like the fact that you've included a small glimpse of the sea for additional effect. Great clarity, detail and even lighting from top to bottom. Impressive look at the tower! wishing you a good week ahead.
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-07-14 23:07
In this picture you can see the contrast
between the old(er) buildings and the
modern. Composition and point of view
are good. The vertical position emphasize
extra the highness.
adramad (39770) 2013-07-15 8:08
Wow you've captured fantastic verticality of the tower, is a splendid building and design redonso contrasts with the other party in straight lines, the rest of the buildings look small in comparison.
It's a nice job, I love it.
The clarity is superb and we can see all the photo in detail, obviously the sharpness is perfect.
I wish you a nice day.
All the best.
lousat (81112) 2013-07-15 8:50
Hi Ike,great choice of point of view to show us the most big tower of your country in the best imposing perspective,beautiful geometric composition in an excellent exposure and whit fine details as usual,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano
Cricri (110295) 2013-07-15 9:19
Pour moi les deux meilleurs de la série est celle de nuit et la présentation de celle ci, le coin de feuillages ajoute une touche de couleurs en plus du bleu et du blanc, fort présent, bon POV, belle et intéressante architecture
Royaldevon (32627) 2013-07-15 12:32
A very well composed shot, where the tall tower is perfectly placed in the frame, dominating the scene on the third's line.
The touch of red, on the roof, draws attention and helps create a fine sense of depth to the focal images. For that reason, I think I would clone out the f/g greenery as it is not really needed for depth and adds a new colour to this limited palette of blue and white.
My warm regards,
mkamionka (31991) 2013-07-15 13:53
I follow your links just to realize that I have missed the previous photos of this tower. The current photo is probably the most interesting mainly due to the interesting POV and angle and asymmetric composition. I like also the crowd of smaller buildings in the foreground which do not have too much character. The tower rises very attractively among them. What I do notice are very characteristic chimneys in the roofs, they seem all similar in shape.
Very well done,
nikkitta (16230) 2013-07-16 12:29
Impressive and good vertical post and capture of the tower going up from the rest of the city
Good to add part of it at the lower part of the capture for more, if possible, contrast
Well done, congrats
Note I also would prefer the not inclusion of the branch, only question of taste
delpeoples (54463) 2013-07-17 1:15
Superb vertical frame which actually elongates the already tall Aviv Tower. I love the tight framing and the beautiful colours that contrast with the tower. Superb sharpness and depth, along with beautiful light.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely week
clic (15762) 2013-07-17 6:46
A strong impression of a huge and flourishing city is convied by this "compressed" view from front to back. due to use of long lens!
And of course, all this built-up area featuring Goliath and many Davids is considered by a fir branch that seems to outdare the Tower's height!
eldancer1 (30806) 2013-07-17 7:51
Those buildings are just getting taller and taller, very soon we'll have buildings reaching halfway to the moon. Very impressive architecture and I'm also impressed that you were able to keep the lines straight. Well done, tfs.
Miguel82 (26246) 2013-07-18 10:33
Magnificent vertical framing Ike
You captured the whole Tel Aviv tower in the photo
Useful links to know more about it
Have a nice evening
josepmarin (57841) 2013-07-20 11:15
this tall building stands out very graphically between the houses of the city, I like its elegant architecture and its slender shapes.
You caught it skilfully by means of a perfect vertical tight framing, and with a nice contrast on the blue sky.
A good composition, I like the pine-tree branches on the corner, well done.
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2013-07-20 23:56
Ike, all I can say here is that your picture is very impressive..
have a great Sunday
Gigidusud (17615) 2013-07-25 14:39
Fantastic city shot with the Aviv tower, great vertical format and splendid light. Well done!
kordinator (19842) 2013-07-26 1:00
Nice view of the lovely tower.
Good composition and perspective, nice part of town.
marina7 (8055) 2013-07-31 12:25
this looks like a giant barrel, never seen this building before. Nice and bright capture, where the harsh cityscape is softened by the beautiful pine tree branch in the corner.
jmdias (58149) 2013-08-05 2:36
excellent view of the beautiful tower rising above the small white houses. I liked the visual effect you got here. TFS.
Hansaphotos (7205) 2013-08-14 3:52
A well framed shot of this impressive skyscraper. The cluster of white houses surrounding the building provides a fine colour contrast to the scene. Very nice work! TFS.
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Erling
maloutim (9637) 2013-08-29 5:38
Lovely shot of Aviv tower which I believe you have posted several times on your gallery. But I had never taken the time of commenting any of them yet.
Striking contrast between the white houses down below, with their shadows on neighboring buildings, and the rising tower that seem to want to reach the sky !
The branch is a fun eye-catcher as if it was winking at the tower, pretending it was as tall :-)
Thanks for sharing and have a good day.
We feel concerned about the situation in your part of the world.
Noel_Byrne (26567) 2014-09-11 11:31
This is a very fine modern tower. As much as my country is filled with castles and ruins, I have a strong love for towering modern structures such as this. It looks especially beautiful set in the older city way down below too, it's an architectural contrast to be enjoyed! Nice off centre composition.
Periko (3325) 2015-03-10 20:35
Interesting and contrasting urban landscape showing such an imposing building over the houses.
Nice blue tones.
ChrisJ (102789) 2015-06-15 5:26
Smart choice of a vertical frame to emphasise and accentuate the height of the gleaming new skyscraper. Excellent sharpness and the red roof bottom right sets up a good warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. The branch at left adds depth and layering. Tfs.
Matyas (6634) 2015-06-29 0:48
Shalom Ike! Amazing skyscraper, amazing modern tower. Fantastic architecture. Original vertical cityscape. Good POV and capture, very good exposure. Original work. Splendid effect. Good luck!
