Obviously, your mind is different, but is it wise ever to re-shoot the same static subject? You can't really hope to catch the emotion a second time - the buzz is there when the vision is fresh. Lose that and you may attain improvement, technical perfection but not soul. Without which...
I've thought very carefully about what you have said in your comment. It is a perpetual battle, at least for me, to balance technical improvement with my personal vision (left brain, right brain kind of thing). IMHO both are an integral part of being a photographer although these can eclipse each other from time to time . I totally understand what you mean when you say -the buzz- when you first see that particular scene, but without growth from both sides, especially tech in my case, I can feel stagnant. I realize that emotion is raw and basic but one needs the ability to share it through a print to make it successful. To me technical ability is simply a tool to better express myself, my story, my awe, or all of the above to make it mine.
In the image being discussed (#2) there are elements that carry through to other works of mine that worked, that being said, this one did not work as well as I had hoped. My main constraints were timing and lack of technique (having not shot many moon shots) and yes, the comp. There are valid comments on why this didn't work to which I agree.
There are locations that I have waited years for the right set of ingredients before I even make my first attempt at capturing them even though I may see them on a regular basis, this being one. Usually it works out but not always. The initial feeling was never lost just logged somewhere until I felt the time was right. I have no qualms about re-shooting (given the opportunity) if I think there is a chance that I can better capture the feeling and will wait until I get another chance. In the meantime I just keep trying to improve and work on other stuff until that opportunity arises. That's the beauty of static objects, you sometimes get that second chance to look at it with the same initial emotion and with a few more tools in your "kit".
