      Cool repetition - I like the guard in the background.

      ever_moire thanks. The guard kept staring my way. I'm getting a little more used to being bold and just going for it. I wanted one with just the gates, no people but the guard, and it took a few shots to get it. He was giving me the "you're encroaching on my space" look. :-) -- Rick Cogley [web|flickr]

      alaindavreux, thank you for saying so. The lens was the 60mm micro (macro) Nikkor and it seems to have some nice qualities.

      Very cool perspective. :)

      Thanks, CharleyMarley. I was getting some pretty strange looks crouched down at the end of the wicket snapping away. :-)

      Im just shocked you actually got a shot in Tokyo with NO other people in it. Not to mention the worlds busiest station of all places.

      CharleyMarley, I waited and waited, and took a lot of shots. It was lucky, because you're right - this is one busy wicket!

      Lovely composition and DOF! I am also very impressed by no other people in the shot! ;-)
