Singapore Botanic Gardens

Flowers with colours that run the range of the colours of the rainbow - almost. Played around with the manual setting of the Canon 400D and using a 55 - 200mm zoom. Too lazy to change lenses and some shots were below satisfactory level. Anyway, it was a re-discovery of how to use manual settings. The last time I used them was with a Pentex K1000 (antique by now). Manual settings rock!
