@Samurai
True, and that one has to be discarded in that case. How long was the exposure?

What was the exposure? I have a similar shot with an exposure of 1/1000 seconds at F/4, ISO 100 (or 200). I think any long exposure will completely wash out the moon unless you use some filter or a very narrow aperture...what say?

I thought moon shots start from f/8 or more. How were you able to get away with f/4?

Hmm, what is this F/8 rule for moon shots? You should be able to pick any F-stop for the moon.

The idea is that since moon is very bright than what people think, any aperture wider that f/8 would generally result in a blowout. This is what one Pro told me when I was talking to him about moon pics. Let me go and try this myself and confirm.

That's where a very high shutter speed can help you. The reason why I used f/4 and 1/1000 is that I wanted to get a good steady shot of moon with camera in my hands. For f/8, I would be forced to use a bit slower shutter speed sometimes affecting the picture quality.

Modern Dslrs have shutter speeds exceeding 1/4000 secs, don't they? So, one may not have to narrow down the aperture alone for preventing over exposure.

Sure... If it is 15s exposure, then why there is individual trail for each and every basket (where people sit) - it looks like a dotted pattern than a continuous one... it you expose for 15 secs, you should see a smoother round trail right? The explanation may be that there was an abrupt lighting sometime between these 15 seconds which lit up the baskets like that..

Maybe because it rotates very slowly you see the individual streaks?

It was F/8 and 25sec.

Here is one more. Not a great composition, but I like the mood of the scene.

Night at a resort hut. F/3.5 4sec ISO100

Default Long Exposure - Infrared

Another type of photography which requires long exposure in bright light is IR.
Cams have IR cut filters in front of their sensors, but still some IR gets in.
So if you give long exposure, you can get enough long exposure.
Many lenses like 18-55 from canon have hotspot issue, so I use 50mm for IR

The following is approx 2 second exposure. The sunlight was very bright. Normally 4-5 sec is needed if you have a 850nm filter.

The Far red/IR filter I have gives dramatic color though.
Eg this 2 sec exposure

If my 18-55 did not have hotspot issue, I would have been doing a lot more IR!
