    Jip,

    An interesting article that has encouraged me to dust off my old black and white effect filters (yellow and red) and try them out, when the rain and murk has cleared! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    Barrie, I had some fun and got some interesting effects with filters on my DP2s, especially with a deep red near-IR filter. One interesting thing to try is to set a custom white balance with the filter on.

    Thanks Paul, hopefully I'm going to get to try the ideas out tomorrow on my Merrills.

    Thanks for the comments, good luck with testing the filters on your cameras! It has been fun, and gave satisfying results so go for it! :)

    Good photos, good article. Thanks for posting it. Reminds me I need to explore filters more in general.
