> That is one beautiful pink arilbred,

This is a good example of a photo misrepresenting the effect, I 
think.  There is nothing wrong about the photo, but it simply 
doesn't look this good in live time.  The color isn't wrong, but the 
photos gives it life not visible when you're there.  Some irises, 
like this one, tend to take flattering photos.  Others, like the 
seedling I like, tend to go the opposite direction.  I like my 
photos to be accurate, and I also want the iris at it's best.  So 
I'm not fond of wind distortion, bug or weather damage.  I guess 
what I want is a truthful 8x10 glossy as opposed to an 
unrealistically flattering 8x10 glossy  A lot of iris just seem to 
show better colors in a photo, others won't show the real effect. 
Mostly, I'm relatively satisfied but not here.  The width, form, 
dark brushing on the falls are okay: the overall color is the same 
only it's dull.
