Dinkelsbühl is an historic city in Bavaria, Germany and a former Free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire. It is located the district of Ansbach, north of Aalen.
Fortified by the emperor Henry V, Dinkelsbühl received in 1305 the same municipal rights as Ulm, and obtained in 1351 the position of a Free Imperial City. Its municipal code, the Dinkelsbühler Recht, published in 1536, and revised in 1738, contained a very extensive collection of public and private laws.
During the Protestant Reformation, Dinkelsbühl was notable for being – eventually along only with Ravensburg, Augsburg and Biberach an der Riß — a Mixed Imperial City where the Peace of Westphalia caused the establishment of a joint Catholic–Protestant government and administrative system, with equality offices and a precise and equal distribution between Catholic and Protestant civic officials. This status ended in 1802, when these cities were annexed by the Kingdom of Bavaria.

questa è una foto molto giovane in confronto alle precedenti.
Ben composta e con una bella luce, che mette in risalto le costruzioni con la particolare torre.
Ottima la contrapposizione tra il prato fiorito e il cielo con le nuvole.

I probably use the word Fairytale too often here on TE, but this is the perfect reason to use it. I can see 100 wizards and 100 maidens in stories in this place. the red tower rising from behind the shrubbery looks superb, and gives a wonderful hint along with the rooftops as to the magic of the town behind. And the red against blue is one of my favourite color combinations for architecture, the green here being just a brilliant bonus.
Even the flower meadow in the foreground looks like something from a fable!
All the best

Great quality for an image so old. The vibrant colours on the lawn and the sky are so attractive. Like the contrast between the roofs and the bright blue sky. Lovely scenic view of a town. Thanks for sharing.

I love the funny little tower pictured here Stephen, where else could it be but in Bavaria? Your scanning looks really good, punchy colour contrasts and fine detail all bring life to your composition. Warm regards Rosemary

a nice composition here. I like most those strong colours through out the frame. Superb composition with very good sharpness and warm light. Excellent shot. Tfs.

Tu as laissé beaucoup d'espace à la pelouse dans ta composition, ce qui lui donne beaucoup de profondeur. Cette tour est magnifique en orange sur fond de ciel bleu.

impressed with your slide conversions. There is no loss of colour or quality, despite the age. This is another beauty, and although a little soft in places it still has charm and amazing presence. Excellent!
Your Arundel shot yesterday inspired today's posting, so thanks for that. B.

soggetto e ripresa molto piacevole pur in presenza di colori apparentemente troppo saturi.
Eccellente la composizione e assai bello il soggetto.
Ciao e buona serata

seems like there are alot of TE members lately re-using slides :)
For me personally, i enjoy these photos simply for the History. Amazing to read just how old this town is.
We just don't have that history in Canada.
good work with the transfer from a slide, looks great.
