This photograph is Ueno Park in Tokyo. I visited this park on the day when the light rain fell a long time. It was also one of the purposes to check that many sea gulls are coming to Shinobazu Pond in one corner of a park like an ordinary year. Since it was a chilly day, there were few visitors. I was walking along the surrounding promenade of a pond slowly. I saw that one Egret was mixed with many sea gulls on the bank of the pond. It was aiming the small fish in a pond with the sharp eye and the long beak. The lookout platform improved these days is located in one corner of a promenade. This photograph is taken from that place. One sea gull was resting on the handrail to which waterdrop was attached. The tree which still left the leaf of autumnal tints stood on the opposite side of a pond with luxuriant. The tower in Tokyo Skytree covered with thick clouds could be seen in the long distance direction of Asakusa. I was here for about 1 hour, and left for home.

Good image. I like the well focused bird and the water drops on the fence against the blurred background.

A lovely close-up work with excellent clarity of the subject and a wonderfully blurry background. Congratulations & TFS!

Hi Mikio, Perfect focus of the FG and the blurry BG stands out the subjects even more. It is certain that the water drops under the fence bar add beauty in the frame. It sure worths 2 points but my coder is finished. Thank for sharing and Merry Christmas

This a lovely shot of this lonely gull.
It comes out very well against the blurred BG.
I like the detailing on the water droplets, they look like little jewels. The gull gave you a good pose.
Very well done.

This is a beautiful composition. In the blurred background we see thick haze and trees in autumn colour. From the very sharp wet railings drops of water are hanging down. The seagull brings a fantastic freshness and purity to this dull day. Its white feathers and red beak and legs look stunning in these grey and brown surroundings. The workshop photos are also very good and appealing.

This is just delightful little fella brilliantly timed and captured on that railing seemingly unperturbed by passing pedestrians but you have got a great eye connection there as this chappy is so determined to have his picture taken. Those tiny spots of orange beak and legs brightly standout in comparison to diffuse greyish backdrop with water droplets sparkle grabbing attention too. It's sharp in focus, pleasantly expose with your usual good infor note. Congrats
