So you metered on the brightest and filled in the window with the flash? Not a bad idea, I guess f/5.6 was good enough for what is in the background. How does c8080 focus on infinity?

Hi Sergey

You can use a workaround to manually focus the 8080 at infinity. You set manual focus to infinity and let the camera go to sleep. When you wake it up it is focused at infinity until you make any focus changes. However in this case I focused on the shingled roof of the out building to the upper right. I used an off camera flash with an IR remote between camera and flash. The biggest challenge was finding a location for the flash which didn't produce reflections off the old window panes.

I like the way you have framed the shot with the window giving the view which probably hasn't changed for 100 years, nicely balanced lighting you wouldn't know there was glass in that window.

Ok, I confess. I cleaned the glass a little before I took the shot. You can still see a little hazyness in some of the corners.
