    In descending order

    Yellow/Green
    Orange
    Medium Yellow
    Green
    Deep Yellow
    Polariser
    Red

    As "scottmj" says - it depends on your "soul" but also atmospheric conditions

    Under the watery skies of the UK, a Red has a significantly different effect than when shooting in the almost waterless atmosphere of say Arizona.

    A Deep Yellow filter in the beep blue cloudless skies of the American South West gives about the same effect as a Red filter in the clearest blue sky of the UK.

    It takes a while to re-calibrate your eye and brain

    I wear a police gear belt which keeps my meter and my most used filtration immediately available. The filters are strong yellow, red, orange, 10 stop nd, 2- 6 stop nd, 4 stop nd, 2 stop nd, 1 stop nd...resin filters are 2 stop nd gradient, 4 stop nd gradient, strong red gradient, strong yellow gradient and strong orange gradient. I use them all....Evan Clarke

    I have recently bought red, orange and yellow filters for landscape work.

    What filter is recommended for female portraiture?

    Yellow is good for smoothing out skin blemishes – ideal for female portraiture

    You could even go as far as orange – but you would have to play with lipstick & make up colours to avoid an unintentional very washed out look

    Green or Blue eventuates skin irregularities – gives that rugged “male” look

    I have a polorizer and several ND filters. I was thinking either an orange or red and was leaning toward the orange. It seems that orange is better for the "first" colored filter. I can start playing with it and go from there.

    Which ones are the most useful for achieving what end?

    Johnny, as one Canadian to another, tell me more about yellow filters and snow (not yellow snow - I know enough not to eat it). I can't seem to get snow right, especially on overcast days.
