Callout for filter photos!

My next back to basics article is about using filters in colour photography. I'm having trouble finding filters!

…So I need photos where people have used the following filters:

1) CPL
2) Graduated colour filters
3) Starburst and other effects.

If you have shot anything like this I’d be very grateful and include your work in my next article. I wanted to shoot my own but am struggling to find filters!

Please place the photo number/links to albums in the comments!

    Not sure if this is quite what you are looking for, but I used a blue-green filter on my Horizon Perfekt for this photo (and most others in that album):

    @mafiosa YES! That's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. How did you do it? Was the filter graduated or just coloured?

    Does that include homemade effects filters? If so, you may be interested in the one I used here: http://www.lomograph(…)adrachromes Regards.

    Hello @adam_g2000 : to answer your question, the filter was just coloured. The Horizon actually comes with three lens filters that fit nicely into the chamber surrounding the rotating lens. One is a blue-green filter (can't remember what the other two filters are for as the blue-green one is my favorite and most frequently used).

    Now that I think about it, I also used a filter on my Infrared attempt:


    In this case, I used a deep red coloured filter (no IR filter).

    I am looking forward to seeing your article.

    @adam_g2000 I have color filter pinhole pics, not sure if that is what you had in mind, but I hope it helps
