I regret the way I phrased my question.
what I meant by not "serious" and on the "go" is that i do not go out specifically to look for these things; however, if i see a nice scene then i would like to bring out the clouds or if I see a nice flower, then I would like to bring out the pedals. So I'm looking for a basic filter system to give me the most mileage and I am not restricting myself to one filter but likewise I do not want a whole collection.
I know how filters work. I have identified the problem: I want to pronounce the sky in scenes and differentiate the colors between flower pedals and leaves. The next logical question is which filters work best for me? The natural answer is to try everything and find out yourself. I was simply hoping (maybe too wishful) for some guidance to eliminate some from the four next filters that i have narrowed it down to..
My thinking is that dark red might be overkill and that the difference between say orange and orange-red is too subtle. So from these four I was thinking orange + red will be more versatile, and possibly a green for a yellow / orange / green / red system, and just forgetting about the ones in between (yellow - green , orange - red, dark red).
