A forest indeed. A fine capture of this well packed marina. I like the warm light and colours; good sharpness throughout.

Nice view to small marina with well composed yacht "parking" area. I like the compressed arrangement, created most probably by use of tele-lens. Your viewpoint and crop is very good. Well done.

This looks like an army, every soldier armed with a raised pike!
I never before realised how busy Tel-Aviv is, as a sailing port. There are hundreds of crafts moored at this marina.
I think it was important to include the harbour frontage as it strengthens the composition and sets a context for the yachts.
My warm regards,

oui des mats de hauteur différente sous un beau ciel bleu et de belles couleurs sur les bateaux bâchés ou non
un parfait alignement et un bon cadrage

There are so many yachts in the marina. Yes, it's forest of masts. This is a very nice shot of a pleasant and peaceful day in Tel Aviv.

I'm a big fan of these Marina photos, I always find them very attractive and i'm just naturally drawn to them.
the tall sails are obviously the star of this scene, and I like how the blue skyline behind them allow it to shine through.

I'm sure it's probably commonplace there, but this is something a bit unexpected from Tel Aviv, as we're mush more accustomed to seeing so many other parts of the city...at least me anyway!? :)
Although I'm not around boats that often , I do enjoy these harbor type scenes. There's a fun atmosphere which is mostly associated with sunny, blue skies and a day on the water...and frankly, how could that ever be a bad thing?
I like the tight grouping of masts rising vertical against the remainder of the setting, kind of that crazy configuration of elements that still works well together. Nice resolution and detail too from a cell phone...sometimes I suppose it's just easier that way, yeah? :) Beautiful warm light and plenty of scattered blue color for me to enjoy.

It is nice to see blue skies after all those dreary skies of Europe. I love that forest of masts.

Are a seafaring image I do love boats - take after my dad he had a fond love of anything related to boats including fishing... I love the composition here with a little of the harbour showing & the tall masts sky bound - the clarity & colours Ike are fantastic... Wonderful photo Ike my dad would have loved it as well!!!

An excellent title, and the masts certainly do make an impressive graphism. The light is exquisite, particularly the golden tones in the background and they contrast beautifully with the blue tones of the sea, sky and boats.

Amazing repetition of the forest of masts on the yachts with good sharpness and a wonderful warm versus cold color contrast throughout between the yellow and blue as well as the solitary red crate in the fg. Have a great week!

This is indeed a very busy looking marina in Tel-Aviv,the skippers of the boats would have to be very careful negotiating their way out of the harbour. Well captured the forest of masts. Couldn't even begin to count them.
ourania (50583) 2013-11-26 8:43
this is a very rich and busy view to the packed marina, much neater than "mine":) Your point of view has offered a pleasant perspective and the depth is great. Your title is very apt, the "forest of masts" and countless details all around are sharp and clear, create a strong vibrancy and tell us about the boats and the way they are taken care of. I like the way the light touches the warm colours creating fine and agreeable contrasts. A very interesting place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Douce lumière matinale sur le port avec cette foret de mats qui ce pointe sous le ciel bleu, belle présentation, une belle suite avec celle présenter sur le lien

Very, very creative, porsonal and original capture of the Tel-Avid marina, not the city but the port and the boats taken with the golden light at sunset
The mast created a strong simetrical composition
I read the notes before writing

Nice capture from Tel Aviv with good layout and perfect grahical effect.
TFS and have a nice weekend
Kielia (24077) 2013-11-29 6:33
this place is very much to my liking! You are presenting a very well composed impression of this busy harbor, the symphony of masts is really exciting. Light and contrasts are excellent too. My compliments!

The vertical lines created by the multitude of masts indicates how busy the harbour is. The horizon gets covered by the masts, but the yellow buildings below the horizon on the right add variety to the photograph.
The details of the boats have been well captured.
Tel Aviv is a city that I have heard and read so much about that I plan to see it some day. These photographs actually keep me encouraged and interested.
Thanks for sharing, Ike.
jmdias (67995) 2013-12-21 4:49
this is a frequent theme in your gallery. nice use of the graphism of these masts.
I am something sad because my previous post was removed, something that make me to think to abandon this site like many other did before.
