The Red Filter

Black-and-white film photographers have been using colored filters for decades. In color photography, a black and white colored filter can be used as well. This is the same image taken from Thatcher Park today. They were both taken with TrueHDR but the second one was cropped to make it more appealing and a red filter was placed over the image "digitally". The red filter on a color image darkens blues and greens and creates more contrast. Thus a punchier look. The filter can be placed of course on the camera but the advantage of digital is you can place it in the processing of the image.  Enjoy, Jeff
