Claudio, your shot inspired me to upload mine taken from the same spot (in March 2007) -->. I cropped the large grassy area in the foreground though (where I grew up 50+, my mom 70+ and my grandfather 100+ years ago... :)

Es ist eine Ehre! My shot was taken a few years ago, I think 2000 or 2001, with a 1 Megapixel camera (! prehistory of digital photography), and the quality is certainly very bad. Indeed much worse than yours! But I love Heidelberg, and I wanted to "publish" the few digital shots that I have. By the way, if you have time, have a look at the geopositioning of my Heidelberg shots, and feel free to correct them, I will accept all your corrections! Best Regards from Italy!

thanks for the compliment, Claudio, but your photo has better contrast due to the light (the angle?) of the setting sun. I use a camera nearly as old today still; I broke a newer one after too little time and have not forgiven myself for that yet (until I do I won't allow myself a new one). Have you seen the panorama shots of HD by DanielBenderhere--> and here--> ? or of br@hd here--> ?

last, if you are a fan of Heidelberg, you might enjoy visiting this website of a baloonist here-->
