Finally I was able to realise the idea which I have been carrying in my head for so long. The night was clear and as the church is located remotely from the village the stars looked pretty crisp. The almost full moon rose behind the mountains about 90 degrees to the right of the camera position and produced those long shadows behind the trees. Because of the bright moonlight I was able to stop down my lens to f/5 for more detail and sharpness and had to use only ISO 2000 which is pretty low for night shots. 100 exposures of each 30s were stacked together in PS for the startrails effect.
