    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Is there any qualitative difference between:

    1 Shooting with a red filter (with a DSLR) and converting to black and white via red channel and monochrome
    or
    2 Changing the red channel level on a regular color shot and changing to monochrome?

    I know red filter are used for film, but is there any reason to use them on digital, besides getting immediate feedback?

    Thanks for any info.
