This is the first bloom I've gotten from this cross....It's nice, certainly unremarkable, but for me it has special significance....its the first (and so far only) paph cross I have ever made myself that made it as far as germination. The parents are primulinum " liltii" X haynaldianum....the parents may still be visible on Troy Meyer's site.....I am proud....its not large, not fancy, not impressive....but its mine! Take care, Eric

good work Eric!! Unfortunately the flower is somewhat blurred. Maybe you can post one of the plant. Jean

:clap:Congrats! Wait til next year, remember they get better! AAhh the second picture is much better! Have you considered cropping & using smaller screen size? :wink: If you're using a digital camera, move the plant a couple of feet away from the wall. The automatic focus will focus on the bloom not the bricks.

Yeah...I know about those bricks....where I shoot depends on the light and time of day. Around noon I shoot with the bricks in the background...the sun is right behind me. I keep the plant about 4-5 feet in front of the bricks. Later in the afternoon, I have grass as the background..but I get more shadows on the bloom unless I hold it just right...colors can be more intense though. I wanted to get the bloom at the right time, before the dorsal reflexed more...and it was likely to get cloudy later in the day. As for the size, I can't get Imageshack to behave like it used to...I never get any options about reducing size to 800 x whatever like I used to...its either thumbnails, or this...on the other hand, I find that imageshack photos, even when gigantic, seem to load up much faster than they used to...and I have a lousy connection most days..(I hate Time warner cable!!!!!!! when will FIOS hit Queens????) Take care, Eric
