    Note to self: Yellow filters and color negative film do not go well together.

    Bah.

    I shoot 99% b+w, and, as such, am quite used to viewing the world in a yellow-ish sheen as I look through the viewfinder.

    Last week I shot a couple of rolls of Portra. Did it even occur to me to get rid of the yellow filter? Nope. Not until I picked up the prints at my local lab yesterday...

    Oh well. I guess I'll have to go hybrid on this one. Photoshop does have its uses, after all.

    Perhaps it's the start of your famous "yellow period"?

    Nah, it isn't really all that bad - or, more precisely, it doesn't look all that bad to my (color-deficient) eyes, anyway.

    It does look a little strange, though - it is clearly mid-day, whereas the light looks somewhat early morning-ish. Good thing I was using a yellow, not an orange filter. I assume things would have looked worse, then.

    Mostly, I am just annoyed with myself for not thinking in the first place.

    Perhaps I should take Andrew's cue and make a habit of it, then call it 'art'.

    Been there, done that... It happens to the best of us. Though there was no hybrid option when I did that last.

    Considering that you have a colour negative, and that you have to "filter" it anyway, printing it on conventional colour paper should not give more or less recovery room than going hybrid. You will certainly lose some colour fidelity but you should obtain realistic results I suppose.

    If you print yourself B&W but not colour, maybe you might try to print them as B&W (I am no printer but I suppose it could work).

    If the result is disappointing you can always sell it as "artistic research in the chromatic domain" but you'll have to have this thread deleted first.

    Well, OddE, if it's any consolation, I can go you one better. Yesterday, while shooting at Lake Louise, I pulled a similar stunt. Shooting both black and white (PanF Plus at E.I. 25) and color (E100VS at box speed), with the Blad, I shot half a roll of E100VS with the orange filter on the front of my 250mm before realizing my mistake! Not only will half the roll of color be deep orange, it will also be overexposed! Oh well...

    In low light levels, you might get something interesting! You might also try cross processing, which is interesting after using a color filter.
