Is this rose Orchid Romance?

I found this rose in San Jose Municipal Rose Garden's test bed. It looked much better than many other roses. I wonder if it is Orchid Romance. The leaves look similar to the one picture that is available at HMF. But the open blooms are lighter pink than the pictures I have seen of it. Sorry about the quality of pics. I am tempted to go back with DLSR and take better pics tomorrow, maybe not.

Thanks,

FJ

A friend of mine has it in his garden and it looks like it could be OR but it's very hard to say for sure.

These blooms look smaller and lighter pink and seem to have a lower petal count than my Orchid Romance. Was there a scent? My OR has a relatively strong scent.
