Sunset @ Chinese Garden, Singapore :: HDR

I first uploaded this shot to iFolio 2 weeks ago so this might not be new to some. Nonetheless its about time to post for non-iphone viewers too. As usual, I haven't had the chance to catch up with 99.9999% of you for the last week except when replying a few quick emails here & there. Therefore, like i always say, PLS.. dont have to comment or fave :) just enjoy (even if it suxs...really) ;) I will definitely try to find time to visit when i can. Cheers! Take care!
