Filter Play

Remembering the Red Water Tower, how much can B&W filters change the image?  And Which filter would you choose?

Opposite colors darken the color in your Image.  So a green filter makes the red tower the darkest:

A Yellow Filter darkens the tower just a bit less:

A Red filter over exposes the Image, making the red too bright; but yields the dark sky that we use a red filter to enhance:

I'd take the Green filter and play with it a bit more in the darkroom..........What's your choice?


  1. And a very useful post to remind us all; like it.

  2. For me it's not about "right", so I prefer the red filter: so sunny!
