Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden

Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden is on North Kuakini Street. I was tagging along with Les on a photo shoot when I decided to try and get some shots for Honolulu Magazine's "Hidden Honolulu" photo contest. This was my best shot, but the original photo is so dull and boring that I upped the contrast, I upped the saturation, I upped just about everything so that I could to get the picture to look like this. I wonder if that's allowed. I better go read the rules.
