    I would use UV or skylight (which warms slightly) I often prefer the slight warming effect of a skylight filter and leave it on all the time.

    Atmospheric pollution is a real problem so location is really important.

    Thanks JK! You said it better than I would have.
    Some of my best work was done with a Leica M3 with a 90 mm elmarit lens. It looked like it had been taken apart with a pipe wrench. An inner lens element was scratched badly. You couldn't tell! A $50 Leica lens! No filter...

    I have a UV filter on my Sony F828. I almost always use a lenshood too. I find the lenshood that came with the Sony difficult to use. Vignetting, if I'm not careful.

    is there any chance of a lenshood causing shadows on a photo?
    I can just imagine in certain light it may cast a shadow?
