I purchased a red filter for my digital and have played with it, but not enough to have it firmly in my mind how it will change a scene. There's really more red in our world than we're aware of, and my eye still isn't trained enough to immediately detect it. I've ended up with photos that have the flavor of a negative, but when there's little to no red...well, you can imagine.

Here I used the #25 red filter effect to lighten the red berries. Normally it is most often used to turn a blue sky almost black, leaving green trees alone so the contrast between them is increased.

:lol: watch what setting you have your camera set to when using the colored b&w filters When I first tried doing b&w on my nikon with them I left white-balance set to auto, and could not figure out why every b&w image looked the same no matter what filter I used. I think the silly camera was autocorrecting for the horrible color cast it was seeing.

Darn, but it just never dawned on me at all! What setting did you learn to use?

Take it off auto and manually set it to whatever the ambient lighting is
A sunny daylight setting worked for me, but it was a sunny day.
