The Summerhouse, Charlecote Park

By TrevBatWCC    
Back to some digital faffing! Reprocessed this image which I took whilst on holiday in Warwickshire back at the end of January 2013. Just across the road from the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel where I was based was the lovely Charlecote Park, and I came across the delightful tiny thatched cottage. Created by Mary Elizabeth Lucy in the mid-1800s, she had it built for her children and grandchildren.
I did upload an image of this at the time, but re-worked it here and tweaked it in Spektral Art. The version is a reworked straight image.
Sent a PM to Sylvia yesterday evening, and she replied back to say she was feeling a lot better, the drugs she’s taking are working, and praising our NHS for the great care she’s receiving 😃 Wishing you a speedy full recovery, Sylvia 👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Spektrel Art, Nik Collection's plugins and Photoshop Elements 2020.

I'll go with the version, being more 'real' it's actually more fantastical. If that makes sense...

As soon as I saw this Trev, it made me think of illustrations found in Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale books!! Your faffing has worked really well with this.....I love it👍!! Pleased to hear the good news about Sylvia, wishing her a full recovery.
