I find the difference is in the clouds mainly.

Of course yellow does not darken the grass in the same way as orange does.

I have also tried a polariser with deep yellow, light orange and yellow/green.

Watch out though - the filter factors are additive and you start needing to use a tripod.

It doesn't work in all situations but there are some where it is really quite a pleasant effect.

Looking through the viewfinder will show you want you are getting.

If I were you I'd try it in a few different scenarios and see if you like the effect.

Thank you Martin and the rest of you for your replies, just need lockdown lifting and some patches of blue sky so that I can as my wife says, "go out to play".

Perhaps not the best choice of words, but skies do tend to be an important part of landscape photography and I am trying to get better at it.[/QUOTE]

Norm, you could be straying into split ND territory there? Not something I have ever tried; though I have one somewhere that I inherited.
