A view of the Tolerance Monument and the surrounding garden atop a small hill, which located near the headquarters compound of the UN, in Jerusalem.
Another modern and new monument recently mounted, designed as two halves of a culumn with an Olive-tree branch, symbol of peace, built by the Polish sculptor Czesław Dźwigaj.

The path is leading my eye toward the monument which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the Tolerance monument. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

A great sentiment to advocate, we all need to show tolerance. It is a lovely monument, tall against the blue sky and with a clear pathway.

riuscirà la tolleranza a regnare sui popoli della terra?
Una domanda senza risposta, con tante speranze, ma nessuna certezza.
La tua foto è bella, come lo è il cielo di questa immagine, come dovrebbe essere la vita degli uomini.

This piece of art appears quite significant in those days of disagreement and in my opinion a replica should be installed in Gaza!
Your picture looks better than on Wikipedia because of the green natural framing in the sky!

The namesake alone could sure be applicable in many worldwide situations about now, yeah? Although the monument is a bit distant in this composition, I like how you've presented it by using the curved walkway to lead the viewer right towards the work itself. Without any close surroundings, it stands alone and proud, making for a strong focal point in an otherwise minimal setting. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

I see the Israelis are ready to tolerate, I wish the same could be said of their neighbors. Beautiful deep blue sky, very effective POV elevating the monument.
abmdsudi (54607) 2014-08-18 21:51
Quite a monument Ike, and a very informative narrative too, brilliant detail, deep colours and what a good job you've done fitting it into the frame with good foreground to complement. The deep sky is just perfect bg to a poignant and compelling image with lovely bits of tree branches nicely filling the negative space on both sides..
Great capture and tfs.

Belle présentation un contre bas du monument de tolérance moderne, la lumière est sublime avec un bleu en toile de fond, belle image et note
adramad (46030) 2014-08-19 8:12
In the world would call for many more monuments to tolerance, and that the people would observe it ...
It is a nice and original work of art, very well captured from below, with all the free space around it.
An image to enjoy with its beautiful color, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Very well done.
Have a happy day.
ourania (46364) 2014-08-19 9:05
your picture is well composed and interesting, I like the depth, the contrasts and the space offered to this brilliant and reassuring sky. The monument doesn't look very attractive to me but it's surely intriguing, asking to be analyzed and interpreted. The strong light and the contrasts create a minimal/graphical impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Didi (60588) 2014-08-19 9:19
Interesting curved perspective on the monument
In spring time it's preferable to take pictures in the early morning or tje late evening

nice the view of the Tolerance monument with the branch of the olive tree to dominating on the top of it.I like the brilliant light of the photo as the contrast between the colours.
mkamionka (37241) 2014-08-20 6:17
interesting modern sculpture. You show it in the context of the location. I think it would be interesting to see it closer too to be able to see the details. Amazing weather, I am so jealous about it.
I am praying for a peace in your country,

A simple but powerful and expressive sculpture. Good upward pov to the top of the small mound and excellent sharpness. The tree branches add depth and layering, add borders and partly frame the scene. Tfs!
