I guess I would say that it is reasonable to say one iris is obviously 
not a particular cultivar (e.g., Splashacata is obviously not Edith 
Wolford) from two pictures, but unless you had some additional 
information such as "I think I switched name stakes on these two 
irises, which one is which?" you can not identify either one 

I know I am being a pain in the you-know-what here, but I have seen way 
too many mis-identified irises to not stand on this soap box....
