    These contest are LEGIT in as much as they are a contest, often times thrown by "Reputable" companies like and, including NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.

    If you read the fine print..... WHICH NO BODY DOES .... these "contests" are a copy right grab.

    When you submit your image, you are GIVING THEM THE PERPETUAL, FOR ALL ETERNITY, RIGHT to use your images as they see fit ... FREE.... FOREVER.

    You get a "Image taken by CHUMP Photographer" as your payment.

    Your chances of actually winning anything are -------->||<------------- 100 times less than that gap! You are not going to win.

    And, you GAVE THEM, what you thought, was your best image!

    So, if that sits right with you..... Go Ahead and Enter.

    Otherwise ... pass the word on.

    A good contest is one where the rights belong to you forever, you win a prize, the Contest Sponsor uses your image only to promote the contest and it isn't for eternity. GOOD LUCK FINDING THOSE.. because the whole idea is TO GRAB YOUR IMAGES!!!

    READ THE FINE PRINT BEFORE YOU:

    i) enter any contest
    ii) Upload to FACEBOOK
    iii) upload anything to GOOGLE
    iv) use a service like Photobucket or the like
    v) READ THE FINE PRINT

    Because, you may not know it.... by simply uploading an image to even a social media sight can result in the EXACT SAME THING... they take your image!

    One more time.....

    ​READ THE FINE PRINT

    PS: if you do upload.... upload a 72DPI, small image. Not a hi-res, 8 MP super image. Make it barely presentable so they can't make it bigger or print it or use it other than how you intended it to be used.... to be viewed online only.

    You cannot use black and white filters and get the same effects you would with B&W film. The digital sensor only sees in color. If you set your camera to monochrome, the camera is just converting it. If you want to simulate B&W filter effects in a digital conversion, you need to use something like PS's Black and White conversion (NOT desaturate). It allows you to lighten or darken the different colors in the converted image.

My deal is I like to do portraits so I suppose the Y/G would be good for outdoor stuff because of what it does to skies and clouds and the green would be good for indoor portraits because it softens light contrast and increases color contrast. At any rate if I ever do B&W I'm going to get some filters because just plain old vanilla B&W seems like it would be boring to me.

    They also say B&W is more difficult to pull of then color stuff.
    Ansel Adams said it was always harder to make a technically perfect B&W print than a technically perfect color one and who knew more about B&W than he did?

    As for filters, what you start off with will depend entirely on what you want to shoot. Red filters are useful for increasing contrast in blues, like darkening a blue sky, and also increase contrast overall. Yellow tend to render black and white closer in values to what our eyes see. Green filters render skin tones (caucasian) more naturally. Orange works about half way between red and yellow. Yellow green does essentially NOTHING for skies. I am not sure where you heard or read that. If you want to increase contrast for skies and clouds, you use a RED filter

    Well- my Monochrome Nikon DSLR camera is 20 years old, and it's been 15 years since the DCS760m...

    So if you want to shoot Monochrome Digital, Leica has one.

    Red Filter, Leica M Monochrom, 35/1.7 Ultron at F4:



    100% crop:


    chimney_monochrom

    Leica M9 (color camera), 35/1.7 Ultron at F4, Red Filter simulated used Nik Silver Efex2.




    chimney_m9_converted

    at 100% crop, you can see the artifacts introduced from converting the color image to Monochrome. Simulating a red filter throws away info from the Blue and Green channels, a Simulated yellow filter throws away about half of the information.
    Digital: Nikon DF,Nikon D1x, Nikon D1, Nikon E3, Leica M Monochrom, Leica M9, Leica M8.
    Film: Most every Nikon from the Nikon M through to the F3HP.
