Is my new birdsnest bleaching?

I just got this birdnest on Saturday. On one side the polyps seem to be doing great. Nice and open. On the other side, I feel like they have lost color and the base looks white. These are the best pictures I have.

SG: 1.024
Ammonia: 0
Nitrates: 5
KH: 11
Calcium ~380
PH: 8.0

5 gallon tank with a par38. I've attached a picture of the set up as well.

Under anticipation that the light is too bright/ quick of a change... I have redirected my par38 a little to the right.

Any thoughts?
