Ai Nikkor 28mm F3.5 + 80B ( Blue filter) WB=Daylight
F3.5, 4sec, ISO-400

Little experiment to see how it may looks like if I use this filter on daylight film.
I bring the black point to (+15) and apply some luminance noise reduction on PP.

I like the enhanced cobalt blue in the sky while this industrial area lights in closer one get white colour.

Sunrise - 朝焼け

Ai-S Nikkor 85mm F2.0

I changed WB to "Shade" and slightly altered the black and recovery and slide the clarity to negative (make it little soft).

In reality it was slightly more blueish sky like this (WB was "Cloudy" setting).
It also could be better if I clone out the tree brunch at the bottom right corner, which is kind a behind the water-mark.
