I know how frustrating that can be. I was working on a pan shot of a pair of AEM-7's the other day and for some reason I just could not get it to line up. I captured the front and rear of the locomotives but for some reason I just stopped pushing the button as they passed right through the center of the frame.

That looks like a nice location though, definitely worth another trip. I imagine that would look good as a winter scene too (Forgive my lack of geographical knowledge, but it does snow in Luxembourg, right? )

That reminds me of another image I worked on. About a year ago May I went to shoot at night, and the one shot I was after came out well except for the focus. I was sure I had it set right in the dark but for some reason it just didn't work out. I tried to recreate it during the year a number of times but the lighting was never quite the same. Long story short, I waited almost exactly a year to the day and finally got it:

Good luck with yours!
