About This Image

Shakespeare's famous Globe Theatre was recently reconstructed as an accurate replica of the original, and on the same site in London. It now has many Shakespeare productions, amongst other theatre. This shot was taken with a 10.5mm fisheye lens, which has distorted straight lines into curves. This seemed somehow appropriate for a "globe" theatre!

No problem about the questions! To take them in order: the white in the sky to the left of the theatre is simply the result of over-blown highlights. The sun was just behind the building at the left of the frame, and only just out of shot. Even my D200 can't cope with that! The Globe is very much a working replica, although because the internal space is open to the weather, only summer performances are held. It holds 1,500 people (although it's interesting to note that the same sized building held 3,000 in Shakespeare's day before anyone cared about health and safety!) Hope that helps Steve

Hi Steve From the thumb nail image this looked like a reflection in a convex mirror,but realised from your desciption that the fisheye lens helped this effect,I was curious of the white in the sky as it didn't look like clouds and is it a working replica,like how many does it hold or is it only for show,(sorry about the 101 questions) regards Vince
