nice the night view of the city from Tel-Aviv's skyline.I like the panoramic view with the skyscrapers lights to turn on and the black foreground to contrast perfect with the illuminated part of the image.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

i like this nocturnal view, also for its nearly panoramic format. there is not noise, I see only some points that could be glares on the glasses, have you photographed from behind a glass? Aviv tower is really very high.
buona serata Ike

una panoramica notturna rappresentata dalle due fasce di nero e di azzurro dentro cui si collocano i grattacieli,
Buona idea compositiva,

Very good night picture from Israel with an interesting composition and a good light managment. I would have tried to crop about 2 cm of the lower part of the picture to limitata the black part. Nevertheless a good fotojob.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

A wonderful image with this beautiful skyline of the city, I like the intense contrast of black on the bottom of the image that makes the building stand out better with their illuminations, beautiful blue sky tone despite being dark.
Good start of week.

The wideness of the dark area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Tel-aviv skyline at night. Using a shutter speed of 25 seconds has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike, Here is a shot that almost sparkles. Great lighting and a good capture of the bright skyline. Very well done. Have a good week. Regards, Roger

I see that you are experimenting more and more with the manual mode on your camera for your nightshots. I am happy to see a low ISO like 80 used. When I am shooting nocturnals, I usually will use an ISO of 50 or 100, an aperture of f9 to f/11 and whatever the meter says for the exposure. The unfortunate thing with sooming is that the more soom, the more noise. So things that are focussed on from a distance will never be completely sharp. But you have done a good job here. I like the strips of black and the golden lights are very pretty. Nice work, have a beautiful day.

Horizontal format and POV well selcetd for the presentation of this nice night's shot. Good managment of light with the coloured light which arise very well. The alignement of high edifices is very graphic too.
jhm (157798) 2011-12-05 3:12
No bad picture but not your best of the last period.
We get lovely elements with good light and a lot skyscrapers as subject.
The foreground is a little bit dark, this is a choice of the photographer.
The next time better as always.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

An intresting technique and a marvelous night shot. The siliouetes from the skyscrapers lit up the dark sky.

A wonderful, light-polluted night panorama of the city. By night, the black trees in the foreground highlight the glow of the city. Really successful composition.

Très belle vue panoramique nocturne. Les lumières des immeubles et des voies forment de jolis points lumineux sur la ville.
Belle réussite technique.

another fantastic and exciting impression of the Tel Aviv skyline that you have captured excellently. The management of the light is outstanding. My compliments!

Very nice panoramic view of Tel-Aviv. Good dof with nice details for an evening shot and not bad for having no tripod. I like the color of the sky. Well done, tfs.

Ciao dear Ike,
beautiful night photo of Tel-Aviv, in which rises in the sky the Aviv Tower. Considering the 6 km of distance I have to say that the details and the sharpness are well defined, thanks to the good management of the light. This time there is not noise in the sky, congratulations! ;-)
Ciao, have a nice Friday!

Thanks for your visit Ike
You succeeded beautifully the experience of a long exposure and it is for me an incentive to mate such difficulty the way you did!
jmdias (67141) 2011-12-24 15:30
nice view of the town. I liked the grey and black strips and the barrier of buildings in the middle of them. nice job
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-12-27 13:46
This is a very nice night scene. 25 seconds without a tripod can be a long time. But the result is splendid. In each image of the town both daytime and nighttime looks beautiful. In the foreground, there is a very dark part of the town, so that the centre of the city looks like it is floating on a plane. All the mixture of the illumination makes this image very attractive. The cinematic format is very nice. Is the town safe enough to walk around at night with a very expensive digital camera? Taking photos at night is fine, but one must be very careful with it. Thank you Ike for this wonderful photo.
With my very best regards,
Have a very pleasant holiday season, Ike

You're capturing well this night skyline by a good panoramic view and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the skyline with high-rize buildings in blue hour. It's good at contrast of the front side with silhouette and the Tel-Aviv skyline with the light. And, a row of star-mark light at the middle draws out a good impact.
mcmtanyel (26882) 2014-09-17 21:25
This is a well taken panoramic view of the nightly skyline of your hometown. The photo is noise-free and sharp, displaying a lovely cityscape.
Miguel82 (27648) 2015-02-13 11:18
It's a fine view taken from the suburbs Ike, great panoramic photo, good light management, the modern Tel Aviv appears by night
