That's not true at all. It may be true for certain situations, but certainly not for all.What I'm trying to say, if you get a good standard color photo, you can mimic any kind of filter with PS or lightroom or whatever. Once you took it with a filter, that's it. No going back
I don't use the in-camera filters, for the reason you stated - there's no going back. But - optical filters (you know, the kind that screw onto your lens...) do have a purpose.Yes, but you could draw a parallel with shooting in sepia mode. I hate it when my girlfriend does that. She says that she likes the sepia shots more, but you just limit yourself by doing that.

This might be just me, but I don't see Neutrla Density on the list
Of course you can't mimic a ND filter in PS.
OK. Let me put it this way. when I see the post from the start of the thread, this is the story that rolls trough my mind:
Sarah Elizabeth bought lightroom, she thought the effects were cool, but also she heard she can screw a piece of blue glass on her lens instead of using lightroom and, of course, she's curious why she would do that if she could get the same thing with one click of the mouse.
Sorry if I got misunderstood
