Thank you Carol for your comments, feedback, and camera advice.  These seedling photos were taken during the earlier morning hours mainly because I was too excited to wait until later, but I'll try the hour before sunset next time to see if I can better catch the pearlized look these irises cast.
The seedling does have great substance, good branching, nice placement of buds, decent growth habits, and the reverse side of these pastel pink falls is a lovely contrasting light honey yellow. I'll have to record it's height next time around. I'm pretty excited by what I saw and the direction this can go in.

Margie, I love this new seedling. It's unique and looks like it has good substance.  I wish I didn't live at the other side of the U.S. so that I could see it in the garden.  Your question about photographing the pearlizing with the digital got my curiosity going.  I went throught my recent photos from this past bloom season and noticed that the best glistening and best sheen images ( I don't have any pearlized) were taken with the sunlight shining low in the sky about an hour before sunset.  The other ones that I shot with a flash in broad daylight gave that sideways illumination that seems to be needed to get the sparkle or reflection that is needed.  Not easy. I'm not an expert but this is my what has been lucky for me since it doesn't seem to be an exact science.  I'm attaching  an image of Leda's Lover which I think looked good with the surface twinkle.  This is the first time I've replied so I hope it works.  Carol Ann from Doylestown PA.
