Hi all,
Was just thinking of going out to purchase my first filters for B+W photography... I shoot mostly landscapes and architecture, mainly old rotting buildings, etc!

If I were to buy only 3 filters for B+W photography (aside from UV, polarizer and ND filters which I already have for my colour shots) which ones should they be?

(I was thinking of red and perhaps light-green except I don't know what exactly corresponds to B+W's "light-green" in the Hoya series!)

And does anyone know the difference between Hoya's green/orange/red filters and Hoya's HCM green/orange/red filters?

Sorry for so many questions in one post!
