I was talking in general .. but till date I was shooting at max apearture i.e. around f/3.5, I didn't knew it doesn't give good results to my surprise. By the way do you have any links that teaches such techniques. Like I saw somewhere in this forum that says "as a rule of thumb one should be taking picture at shutter speed equal to focal length"

There are many good books on general photography. Just go to amazon.com.

Maximum aperature is not a bad thing...just a little soft generally, but most of the time not noticeable at normal print sizes. Again, aperature is just one part of the equation. What were you shooting, what were you hoping to accomplish, what were the conditions. There are lots of things that could lead to bad results.

There is no general photography....conditions, subject matter, vision, is always different. That's why it is important to understand photography basics.
