    A bit fuzzy, but looks like a very good yellow. Nice and bright.
    I like it, well done.

    Gorgeous Eric, but, does the cat chomp one of the petal?

    I just got it from John Chant in Calif. It is the "nicer" one than the one's he had on eBay [yes more money]. It was damaged in transport but has another bud.

    The flower does look like it worths every dollar you spent on it.

    The cross was on eBay twice and some West Syed creeps sniped me at the last minute [eBay is Pacific time; while we sleep they're creeping around.] So I contacted John and bought it directly.

    Decent digital cameras don't cost much more than a good orchid these days...maybe next time you have the urge to get a new orchid, you could get a camera instead! :poke: (just teasing...it looks wonderful..I have yet to get a besseae flavum cross, but I want to)

    I still don't think it's the camera, but an end-user problem:> What kind of camera is it?

    I use an Olympus C-5050 Zoom.


    You know, my dad just visited and we oohed and aahed over his new sleek, and LITTLE Olympus that he bought(I don't remember the model). I thought is was great that the battery life had improved so much. I tossed around the idea of getting one. I like my camera fine, but the battery life sucks and the camera itself is much larger than the new ones on the market. Well, we got a CD of the photos he took while he was out here and they were pretty bad! Sort of grainy and always just a smidge out of focus.

    Maybe someone who has your model can give you some pointers...
