Thank you for your answer. You say that the foreground needs to be within the DoF. Well I wonder how it can;t be. Sorry for my ignorance, but when shooting to infinity -moon- DoF is large, right?

I just checked a DoF calculator. You should download one to your phone, it's a very useful tool, and you can learn a lot by playing around with it.

On a full frame camera, with a 300mm lens at f/5.6 set to infinity, the DoF near limit is 530m, which is also the hyperfocal distance. With the lens set to 530m, your near limit is 265m and the far limit is infinite.

So yes, the DoF is large, but the tree across the street isn't in it, not even at f/16.

Good luck and good light.
