The exclusive Tiffen ENHANCING filter makes reds, rust browns and oranges "POP" with minimal effect on other colors.
The Tiffen "ENHANCING Filter" is a combination of rare earth elements in glass. It completely removes a portion of the spectrum in the orange region. The effect is to increase the color saturation intensity of certain brown, orange, and reddish objects by eliminating the muddy tones and maximizing the crimson and scarlet components. Its most frequent use is for obtaining strongly saturated fall foliage. The effect is minimal on objects of other colors. Skin tones might be overly warm. Even after subsequent color timing or correction to balance out any unwanted bias in these other areas, the effect on reddish objects will still be apparent.
The Tiffen ENHANCING filter is also ideal for earth tone rock formations, architecture, woodwork, faded rustic barns and any photos where red, brown and orange subjects should be enriched or appear more intense.
Combine the Tiffen ENHANCING filter with a Polarizer filter for more dramatic effects.
