Hi, what is/are the prefered filters for emphasizing fall colors with panchromatic B&W film? Thanks.

David: I would start with yellow and light red. The filters lighten their own colors and darken the opposite colors. A polarizer might be helpful also.

My two favorite B&W filters are the B+W 060 yellow-green, and a polarizer. Sometimes a red (B+W 090) if I want a black sky and brilliant clouds, and not much shadow detail. Or a 091 red if I want it to be even more dramatic.

I agree!!! The B+W Yellow green is sweet for ALOT of applications!
