Dawg, thnak you very much for sharing. I've a question for you, I've used orange filter for B&W photos and my DX6490, so the color saturation is not so important for me. BUT using those Cokin filters for color pictures I'd like to ask you what color mode are you using? is it neutral or saturated?

Have you tested both color modes plus filters?

Thank you for your comments.

I haven't tested to see the difference yet Flavio. I shot these in default mode, Auto everything and saturated color as that is the default when you first get and use the camera. This was a test mainly for those that use only the auto mode for most if not all shots. There are alot of those folks out there and I wanted to show them what the filters could do for them. This Weekend I'll try to get a comparison for you. I don't have a yellow, green or red filter as yet but I will try to use the one A-198 sunset for a test and also shoot some B&W shots as well as color for you.

Thank you very much for your efforts, I appreciate it. I'm not using the Cokin system, but threaded filters, final effects must be pretty much the same I think.

Once again thank you very much.

Here's a freeware filter simulator:

Photobrush has a similar feature but not as many filters. Here's the stand-alone version:

Thank you riotact, I'll give them a looksee. Flavio the drop in kind allow you to vary the color added and get a more refined addition of the colored portion.
