Don't use filters

No worries . You get a mixture of responses. Some people post on the title of the thread when they see it is active and without necessarily reading what has been posted, others answer the most recent post(s) without regard to the subject of the thread. This can get confusing!
I feel so lame in that I have only used 'protection' (UV) filters ..... Oh and I twice used a polariser (back in 1986 for 20 minutes and for a shot in the early 2000's )
I still like to use a yellow filter, possibly in conjunction with a polariser that has the same effect as a deep orange if you are in the right position with the sun 90 degrees or so away from where you are pointing the camera. The shadows don't block up as much and the clouds are nicely reproduced. There is quite a a filter factor involved so a tripod is a must if you are using a medium speed film
