"RE: Nikon D3000"

No it's wasn't the camera or handholding (since the camera was perfectly stable with the lens VR settings turned off), the lens just wasn't focusing on the barn while zoomed all the way to the top (in this case 55mm). I'd had no problems when I had it zoomed to maybe 35, it came out focused (although perhaps still a bit dark, I'm still working with the camera), but that setting wasn't working no matter what I did, it just didn't like focusing that fine with it zoomed in as much. It could certainly have been my own error but I probably just won't do night photography at the top range of any lens' zoom from now on, just on principle (unless proven otherwise).

Thanks for the link though, heading over there now to read it!
