    Was there today. Rather hard to navigate around as there're a number of 'ups' and 'downs'.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    was there today. Very disappointing...

    Variety of flowers is definitely less than last year. Flowers are generally smaller. A lot of people in the afternoon and the ups and downs of the place makes it very squeezy. If someone is taking photos, a whole bunch of people will have to stop and wait.

    Now I know why there is no entrance fee this year.... If you are going there, don't expect too much. My personal opinion...not really worth the time and $$ to get there.

    I agree, the location of this year's event is bad, have to walk up and down stairs and slopes which is tiring after a while. Last year also no entrance fee to the sentosa flowers mah.

    The static displays of those nursery rhymes are nice with those wall murals and displays from various schools.

    the statics are nice by themselves. But with the crowds.... a lot of other people in the frame even if you are taking pics of your kids.

    Agree. Just like today when i wanted to take some of the static displays, it's so hard cos the pple are constantly coming in to take pics with them. Until a point when i've to really go right in front, then they'll stop, but not all.

    if there are more people than flowers, I'll end up with macro shots of people again
