Default Odd leaf coloration?

I've got a fairly new to me P. Equesrtris. Yesterday, I noticed one leaf looking a little odd. While I took the pic, I then noticed a black spot, as well.

It is in rather bright light for a phal, but I don't think it's too much. Please help, I don't want to lose it!

Phalaenopsis are deep shade plants for the most part, and will bloom less well in high light conditions.

I certainly can be wrong, but that looks a bit like sunburn, although the damage is not as well defined as is typical.

Thanks, Ray. It could be that it had much lower light before I got it. Jus because my other phals like what they're getting, doesn't mean this one does.

The odd thing to me, though, is that it's only the one leaf, and not all of them.

Maybe it is the leaf most exposed to light.

I actually meant to say in my last post, that it is the leaf furthest from the light. I need more coffee.

FWIW, my P. bellina and violacea are in the same light, actually a little more, and look very happy. I believe I measured that area at around 13000 lux.
