You must first consider what effect you want the filter to have. In monochrome work filters lighten their own colour and darken opposite. In landscape work we usually use green to lighten foliage, however rarely would we also want to lighten a blue sky. So it is more usual to use a yellow/green filter which lightens foliage and at the same time darkens the sky.
