The light and atmosphere is beautiful! The scenery is interesting. Nice photo!

Preciosa iluminación. Gran trabajo. Saludos.
Wonderfull, this is what I missed, the ice cream lady in my dream ... that should have completed the fairytail. Well done, excellent light :-)
I like the concentrated light on this shot. Her expression is lovely - and the guys really look as if they can't wait for the scoop to finish the job. It really is a superb moment in time.
פעם הבאה - גלידה!Very nice lighting - it looks like an ice cream oasis in a desert of darkness.I have no idea where in TA this can be... and I want to know so I can go there :)
A simple portrait, with superbly lighting!
Benjamin Gustafsson says:
Great lighting Ilian. Somebody really wants that ice-cream!
Markus Spring says:
the glass between the viewer and her hands gives the scene something surreal...From the exiv data you showed you must have been quite near, however the impression I have is the opposite. Clever!
Great, great use of light! I love how this creates a point of focus in the picture.
Nice catch! I like the lighting, the two inpatient men and the cute lady. Good framing.
Kourosh Rad says:
I very much like the simplicity of this picture. well done
Nicely composed & great use of available light, I like how the two foreground figures fall into the darkness. Good stuff!! :O)
I've said it more than once but great use of light Ilan :) you have captured the scene so well.
Awesome. Like everyone else says, it's the lighting. Not the kind of lighting you'd see in a photo of an ice cream stand at all. Very cool. Incidentally, when I had nightmares as a kid, they looked like this. Ordinary things in complete darkness.
Great shot, as others,I really like the light you got here. Really looks like the guy is about to jump over and help the lady scoop ;)
Oh..I like this one! A. because it's an amazing photo, and b. because I love ice cream! :D Great photo! You capture the anticipation of grabbing that ice cream cone wonderfully! :D
Yes...lovely light. The 'glida' in Israel is good enough, but I love the frozen yogurt where they have a rectangular block and mix in fruit and/or sweets as ordered. Wish they had that here.
The lighting is perfect here
Great shot!!! it's great and i love ice cream so much ;)) BRAVO~ :)
Fantastic light. Love how you've captured her glow framed between the two dark shadow figures. Excellent!!!
Good genre foto, but may be in B&W more effective?
Like your composition and the way you're playing with lights
Great photograph, I like how the scenery is isolated by the black. You have a wonderful light here, great job postprocessing it.I like the woman smile, and the gesture on the two men.SwissCharles
wow. i really like the lighting & the atmosphere. great one.
What a great light ! Did you fall in love ? With the ice-creams, i meant :))) See ya, Ilan*
Bonjour ilanthanks for u're comments... ;)Really nice photo ! love the light :)see younico.L
Really nice light in this shot! Makes me want to have an ice cream cone! BTW Thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comment!
Hoai Bao says:
Great photo! I love the lighting and contrast. The lady seems nice.
neat photo!! it's like they are alone, in time, space, and meaning :)
Terry H. says:
What a great street scene! Ice cream, a favorite of mine. A beautiful young lady with a ice cream scooper in her hand,a favorite of mine. Two guys standing where I should be standing, not a favorite of mine. Great Shot! A favorite of mine!
a great piece of metering here, I'd have expected a higher ISO than 640. Are they having a midnight snack? grand shot.
the light is fine and i love the way this is framed: superb shot.
Well captured Ilan ... love the mood on this one
un excelente trabajo de luz.saludos
Perfectly framed for the purpose of lighting and confrontation of the acting persons
Peter Knoop says:
Excellent use of the light. Wonderful shot!
Gino Caron says:
Like Elaine, I have a question, I know Nikon and I am not suprised by the low noise (I'm now Canon and I know about noise :), but about the Kelvin, did you use luminescent ? I am impressed by the white of the light itself, compared to the warm color of the skin. It's like you had two different color temperatures. SwissCharles
Perfect exposure Ilan. Tones and framing are right on the money. Nice work. :)
bonjour,great exposure..Wonderful sharpness..Bravo!
A superb photo that's really well exposed. Good one.
@Phototherapy - I ALWAYS shoot in RAW format. I don't remember the WB settings, but it doesn't really matter to me because I "play" with it when I open the file in NX software.RAW is good :)
Ashish Sidapara says:
Beautiful shot, perfect lighting.
Yes, always in RAW, me too, of course. I asked that because I was really impressed by these "two" WB in one frame, which brings a lot used with the black background. It's so well seen! Thank you, Ilan. I don't know NX, just CS3.Charles
Stephen Van Tuyl says:
Great light on this one Ilan!
So simple yet so intimate. Night street photography at its best.
Mario ISO101 says:

I just love this shot! The lighting and everything about it is just perfect.Now I'm getting cravings for ice cream.
very nice street scene, i like how it's exposed.. and she's really pretty! :D
Beautiful photo. Thanks for posting it for the "monthly special." I love the lighting, the framing of the woman, and the shoulders of the man on the right that express his anticipation so well.
Joaquin Arias says:
I can't see their legs, are they ghosts? :-D Nice and not easy shot.
The lighting is exceptional in this, and the quality (with little grain or artifacts) is amazing for a night shot. The 3 people are so nicely separated from the darkness. Fine work indeed.
I really like how the lighting concentrates my eye just to this little scene, adding a certain intimacy.
The lighting is just superb!
love the quality of this light island of life...
