Default Burnt Leaves on Palaenopsis

, Good evening members, I would like to know if my Phal Schilleriana is going to be alright. I noticed today that two of the leave are very sun burnt (see attached), this is the first time I've ever had this problem. I moved the plant back away from where I had it. Should I cut the leaves off at the base of the plant or should I let the leaves dry out and wait for them to fall off naturally. I need some suggestions from people with more experience then I have, waiting for some help.......Zoren....

I suggest letting the leaves fall naturally, which they will do. Any non-burn areas (green) are still feeding the plant. When it has grown new leaf(leaves) it will slough off the damaged ones. The plant will be fine, just look a bit sketchy until that happens. Any cutting, in addition to potentially removing something that the plant can utilize, is also an area that you have to protect from possible infection. If the leaves fall naturally, that's not a problem.
