Blue Hour at Marina Bay

Dear friends, many of you should have heard of blue or golden hour photography.

But it doesn't span an hour, it lasts only about 20-30min. In Singapore, our sunset is around 6.50 pm, so the blue hour lasts about 7 pm - 7.30 pm. In this article, like to share some pictures shot during the blue hour at Marina Bay....
