A beautiful flower. Are the colors correct with the outer portion being fuchsia and the center, red and yellow. In your opinion, did the camera render the image correctly?

Hi Cal,

In this particular instance, yes, the camera did capture the colors very accurately. While I did do a fair amount of PP to the original image (removing the background and replacing it with black), I didn't adjust the color.

Like you I haven't had problems capturing the red of these cattleya.
Good job isolating the flower using a background.
