I can see what you mean about the hint of luminata.  There is definitely a hint of white veining in your photo.  It seems an unusual color for luminata coloring, but on the other hand, I've seen definite luminata type patterning in yellows, browns, near reds, can't remember seeing it in pinks (at least this seems to be basically a pink ground - maybe more yellow?) yet, but why not?  This is a departure though, since the luminata pattern is usually in the darker pigment of a given flower.  It is interesting that there is an apparent white zone around the beard, which would be common in luminatas.  I never looked this closely at this one before, but I don't grow it either.
I'd be curious to know if the white luminata-like patterning in non-anthocyanin colors is due to the same genetics as on flowers with anthocyanin pigmenting.
An unrelated comment.  I've said before that I favor old-fashioned flower type in Iris, but that doesn't mean that I'm not attracted to some of the more modern ones too.  What's interesting is that there is a very high percentage of these that you photograph and post that I like - a lot.  I guess I like your taste in Iris.  Generally I go through Iris photos in sort of a browsing mode.  Open the photo, delete it, one after another after another, without a second thought.  Your photos, it seems I nearly always look several times at, and add the names to a list of ones I want.
