I was in a dinner last night and saw the sky as I was getting food from the buffet table. The colour of the sky struck me so I took the shot even through a filthy glass window.

Hahahahahhahahahahahaa I wanted to get another photo but a lot of people came in. And I have not learnt the art of using a photo editor Sad. I know Geoff is going to say something about it... :D :D :D. Well, he has all the reason to go nuts about tilted subjects in photos, look at this photo!!!!!!!!!!!

Au contraire monsieur Derek, I now love pictures with tilting horizons. Because they give me the opportunity to pubilicize my new tutorial:-

Nice colours by the way. You should not have told us about the filthy window because we are all looking for the dirty marks now instead of enjoying the picture.


Obviously it's not good to shoot through windows, what you should have done is dropped your plate, grabbed your camera and ran screaming from the room, only to return when the last embers of light had died and your memory card was full and there was now no room to take any pictures of your fellow diners which is why you went there in the first place.

I like the sky/colours...but, I 'd also like to see a little bit more of the buildings across the water. Not too much...but enough to create a 'contrast of interest'...within the frame.


Where is that? You are in Israel - right?
Just curious...

I also thought about a little bit more of the buildings and I noticed this one is grainy... I wonder if I will see an orange sky like that again. The weather here has changed a lot and it's supposed to be very hot now as this is the peak of the summer here but it's chilly in the morning and cools down at night. I think the change in weather has something to do with the changing colour of the sky these days.


Yes, I am in Israel and I was in a restaurant by the beach facing the port of Akka.


This place is really beautiful, come visit, Kev, Derek, & Geoff should you ever decide to come to Israe you can stay with us... there, an open invitation to the 3 of you Smile. We will only be here till Aug next year though.

Patria, I lived in Israel for 7+ years...I've visited the Haifa/Acko area many times...I love the country, it's just a huge shame the political situation isn't better - otherwise I probably wouldn't have ever left - shalom.
