    Can anyone show a sample of the difference a red filter makes in B&W
    photography? I understand its supposed to increase contrast, but with Kodak
    T-MAX 400 film my images seem pretty contrasty already. I also wonder if
    the dark daytime sky seen in Ansel Adams' and Clyde Butcher's works results
    from a red filter.
