Shakespeare's Birthplace is a restored 16th-century half-timbered house situated in Henley Street, where William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and spent his childhood years. William's father was a glove maker and wool dealer, and the house was originally divided in two parts to allow him to carry out his business from the same premises - the business section can be seen at the right-hand end of the building. V2 is taken from further down the street, giving a wider view of it's location.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Two very well captured and processed images. I prefer V1 purely because there are no "people distractions" and the eye is solely on the building but that is a personal opinion

A difficult balancing act between having figures in for scale and human interest without then becoming the focus of attention. v1 with one couple would be perfect. Excellent detail from the processing again, Trev. Not open to the public i would guess.

Both versions are excellent, Trev, and I agree with Dave's remarks. When we were there ( decades back ) there would have been a tour coach parked there for sure. Very detailed images and nicely processed.......it's a fine old building, full of character and so good that it has been so well looked after and preserved down the centuries.

Excellent couple of captures Trev, the people do not bother me, it would be difficult to photograph this place without Tourists. If my memory serves me right the main road used to go passed the house, looks like they have pedestrianised the road, about time too, once again excellent processing.

Regards

Trev.

The light was with you for these Trev, two very nice shots. V1 is my favourite.

How on earth did you manage to get V1 with no queues of Japanese and American tourists there? It is nothing short of miraculous.

Not easy to get a good image of the house here, usually so many tourists around - you did a smashing job with this one Trev, it's such a wonderful old building!

When I was there, Shakespeare (actor of course) was leaning out of the top window and gave us a rendition of Sonnet 18 - Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day, have a pic of it somewhere in my PF Smile

Two beautifully composed and crafted compositions. The processing has been done sympathetically whilst still retaining the charm and character of this wonderful historical setting.

Cracking. The image, not the building! Absolutely stunning image, very clear and pin sharp. What programme do you use to process your images? They are really well done.
