I decided that it made much more sense to compare the three different pictures for each filter rather than compare all the filters on one picture at a time. This way I can see the difference that a filter makes for a building, a scene with foliage and a portrait.

Color: Black & White

I like this filter for the portrait and the foliage but not so much with the building. This is a softer filter which is very nice for someone’s face but I think the building should have more contrast. The building isn’t bad but it’s not very interesting either.

This is warmer filter with some contrast. It washes out the portrait somewhat but is nice on the foliage picture and the barn.

This filter has warmer blacks, good contrast, added grain and a vignette. I don’t like it on the foliage picture but, surprisingly to me, I do like it on the portrait, I think it’s the grain that helps here. I also like this filter for the building – the vignette helps with the washed out sky.
