I had to go back to Heidelberg after I discovered the difference between "auto" and "shutter priority" modes...I think the trip was worth it...what say you?

The Schloss sits on the hill in the top left with the Bridge Gate just below it. The Alte Brucke (Old Bridge) spans the Neckar River from the bottom left and the Church of the Holy Spirit towers over the Old City of Heidelberg in the top right.

The first attempt at this shot is here.

Chris, this is absolutelyl fantastic! Holy Cow! You really must be inspired now. I'm so glad you went back. It was definitely worth it! Now you can teach me how to take fabulous night shots with stars in them! lol What a difference from the first shot. I'm faving this because it is so beautiful and also to remind me to learn how to shoot at night.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Hi Chris, I have just returned from my mini vacation in the Lakes District and have been looking at your latest photos! and...WOW! breathtakingly beautiful - I put three of them into my favourites - I would not say which I liked better because I think they are all works of art! Night shots are extremely difficult to do well and you have proved by these shots that you are an expert! No advice ...can you give me some? lol! :) I am not commenting on all photos as I have over a 100 pictures in my friends list from this week alone! lol! ...but just wanted to say listen to the comments, even if the scores do not truly reflect how good these pictures are - they should be much higher!

Hi Chris,
I like this picure much more than the one you posted some time ago, where the red cast was a bit overwhelming for me. This one is an excellent night photo. It's very sharp and I like how the yellows and the greens match in a very pleasant colour combination. So yes your trip was worth it and anyway in my opinion Heidelberg is such a beautiful city that a visit is never wasted time.

This is much, much better. The difference in quality between the 'before' and 'after' shots is huge. A very pleasing shot indeed.

Your night time shots are fabulous. If I wasn't so far behind after vacation I would have left a post on each of them.

Killer shot. How did I miss this before? Schloss Heidelberg is one of the "burned into my mind" spots, something about it just cranks. This beauty is going straight on my DT, great to have till I can get back to Germany myself.
