Ya know, I really appreciate picture of spiders that are truly clear and accurate presentations (a legal term) of what they really look like. Most pictures of these guys you see make them look like they are generally fluorescent orange. It's a good looking spider in its own right, why adjust lighting, shading, contrast, etc.? It like GBB's throw light on them and EVERYBODY wants one. In reality, they sit in their web and at a glance it looks like you have a black spider. Sorry, just had to vent, and give you kudos for having a very cool spider.

It may just be the age difference but I picked up a decently sized individual yesterday and damn if she's not as/more bright orange than my OBT. I'll post up a pic later, undoctored, for reference.

Maybe different localities? Mine have never been super orange. Always been a pale orange that blends into the backside of cork bark.
