green and red filters work well for darkening skies and bring out the contrast

For what it's worth, I find shooting in black and white very emboldening. I need to worry less about the white balance in a room, CA is a non-issue, and so is Sony's color noise. I shoot more loosely and creatively, under more reckless exposure settings.
