    I agree with you, Pavel re film ( BTW I still have a few rolls of negative colour film and slides in the freezer ). Yes digital cameras are improving but still unable to cope properly with the UV end of the colour spectrum. My youngest son was home for the weekend and we compared shots of V Pure's Wax using his latest Nikon D7000 against those taken with my Nikon D70 and D200. There was a slight improvement in colour rendition but still far from satisfactory.

    Great growing Yew. For the plant size I think the blooms are awesome.

    Now I have a Fuji "super-zoom" (Finepix SX200 EXR ) which I use as a holiday camera - can't carry all that heavy Nikon kit nowadays - which has a button which I can press and it will take three successive exposures, each adjusted by the software in the camera so that one has the same range of colours as if it were shot on Fuji Provia, the next on Fuji Velvia and the next on Fuji Astia ( I'll ignore the sepia and b and w ! ). I must try that out on my blue Vandas.
    Velvia btw is the one with high contrast high saturation - as used by landscape photographers to get some life into pictures which otherwise would be flat green scenes.

    Very beautiful Yew ! You have to leave the modern camera developers some scope to work or they will be out of jobs LOL ! FOr the next 10 years they can work on developing better cameras to capture the blue spectrum LOL !

    I agree with you, difficult to get the true color of violet all the time come out as a blue, any way the color of your flowers is very intense.

    Yew, have had the same problem with capturing the true color of vandas in this violet group for years now, film or digital, whatever setting, the true color is never captured. I don't know why. I don't have any problem with the reds and oranges, and all the other colors.

    I love the whole direction Pure is going in. They have some magnificent crosses.
    Beautiful plant!
