    That's a very broad question but for digital photography you may find you need only neutral density graduated filters and a polarising one.

    What is puzzling you?

    thanks CB for your advice and i should purchase neutral density and polarizing filter. but as i donot have any macro lens so it is a bit puzzling for me about +1, +2, +3, +4, +10 close up filters. i know about the functions of each of them at the same time i donot want to buy all that. again there are blue, green, tobacco, red, yellow, UV , infrared etc. filters. as i have never used those filters, i do not have any experience for the general usefulness of them and which one has more popularity for using. although i know the function of each and every one. so it is actually puzzling me. can you help me to select many of them except ND and polarizing because i will obviously purchase them.

    I wouldn't bother about close-up filters. Save up for a macro lens.

    You don't need any of the other filters either.

    thanks for your opinion and i am quite sure that only ND and polarizing filter will be better.
