Red? Orange? Coral? Whatever name you want to call it, I love the vibrant colors of these Ixora plants. When the bloom is new, it is lighter in color and as it ages the color deepens to the darker tones. In the shade the velvety blossoms almost seem to glow against the deep green leaves.

Post processing: Increased the exposure and blacks in ACR, in Photoshop cloned out distracting spots, Touch of Dark around the lighter bloom on the bottom image, sharpened with the Edge and the Highpass filter.
