The green filter held enough in the sky for me to be able to 'burn' it in 
when I had the scanned negative in PhotoShop. An orange 
or red would have made more impact on the sky but would have darkened all 
the foliage and I wanted that 'silvery' look that the 
green filter gives me. Although I darkened the sky from the scan that is 
about how it looked on the day. I don't always have good 
skies to shoot. It may seem that way but if the sky isn't good I don't shoot 
it :-)

Thanks for looking.
