May I know why most of you're using such wide aperture?

For night shots I use F8, but when I want stars I go wide, because at ISO 200 on F8, the stars come out too dim.

I have to plead the same reason. While shooting at night at distant light source, I found narrow aperture killing all the brightness. The photo with rays coming out of the tree, that tree was at least 1 Km from the camera. The kabini shot was an exception, I was a P&S shooter then.

Almost all cameras offer 30s long exposure and then BULB. To have long exposures in BULB you will surely need a tripod & a remote/cable shutter release accessory.

Go here - Amazon.com: Remote Shutter Release Cord for SONY Alpha or Minolta 5D, 7D: Camera & Photo for your SONY's shutter release cable.

While generally shooting the night sky or the moon, that I mostly do, DOF becomes redundant. I open the aperture fully to gather the most light available.

Well, coming back to your question Sir, you did ask this with some specific point in mind. Could I ask what it was and if you were me/us, how would you do it?

Thanks Slick, it was originally shot for a PAAI competition with the same theme two years back.

Here is another with full zoom at 200mm (400mm EFL), this tree is at least a KM from the camera.

Anoop, generally moon shots are not long exposure shots. How many seconds did you expose this frame?

Chiswick church (Turnham Green), shot about 4 years ago at about 10pm. The white lines across the front, is a bus pasing by. I think exposure time was around 5-6seconds.

@samurai..i liked the effect of the rays in those shots, but not a big fan of the building and the hoarding in blue near it. They murder composition, what say?

TG, this shot is one of the discards. I posted it because many people appreciated the original image. I was just giving a closer shot of the original image. Not every composition works, one has to be ready to discard it if it doesn't work.
