    Default Slc Love Castle

    Picked this up at the last orchid show I attended [where I spent waaayyyy too much money]. Not very happy with the pic. That recurrent problem of trying to snap a photo of a purple bloom & have it come out accurately. *sigh* The "floofy" area of the lip of the flower in profile is actually closer to the true color of the flower.

    Nice! Very appropriate name, I'd say.

    It's great, Pavel! Those intense red-purples are a bear to render accurately. For what it's worth, it's all in the lighting. Nice one, regardless!

    Very beautiful -- although I think its name should have been "Slc Hot Lips."

    Wow that is bright.

    I know what you mean about the lighting issues. I have a fantastic magenta coloured phal, but whenever I take a photo with the flash it looks pink, without the flash it looks like mud. I keep trying though.

    Gorgeous Catt though, what's the scent like?

    Nice bloom! I too understand the color issue when photographing blooms in this range. I have found that even when I get it really close to accurate, the different computer monitors shade the colors differently to different users too.

    Cheers,
