Uh OH, You have just brought up a good point. My post #4 above was probably shot with a Canon 10D, which would disqualify it as a compact camera.Good stuff! The only barn shot I have was shot in Vermont over 20 years ago with a 4x5 monorail setup, so it doesn't quality as a serious compact. I love the subject, though, and these shots all please me very much. Thanks.
