What filters (if any) do you use?

I was alway told the less filter the better, yet I see a ton of shots with them that sell well. What do you use, and show examples!

Are you referring to using camera filters or those used during post production? I'm guessing the latter, but making sure! I've had some photos rejected for "overfiltering." They were ones that I thought looked really awesome, but I gather they may lose some usefulness to certain designers!

On post - a lot of the cemetery shots I have seen are way over processed and still they are on line.

I can see that if they're made to look creepy or something like that. I guess it depends on the scenario.

If the filter is adding / enhancing the expected effect on the viewer, then it is generally accepted. I have some horror shots which are a little desaturated and increased structure. The original was mostly funny, but not creepy for sure :)
