Regular Random – 5 Minutes with exposure settings

Thought I might try something a little different this week. While on holiday we were sitting in the hotel lobby waiting for our driver and I was watching the rain. As there were no window panes I had a clear view of this frangipani just outside and decided to play with exposure settings to see how…
