Brown. I was always into gray/ND for neutral filtering, but when I tried brown for the first time, at first I was all like “eww”, but it grew on me very fast. Almost like lighting everything with a WW light.

I like black/dark grey.

I also like the looks of mirror/silver ones, but I've never owned any.

I voted brown but it could as well be yellow/gold.

As Lightbringer puts it, it seems the sun is always shining whatever the weather.

It also makes for beautiful skies. Yellow filter is a classic for B&W photography. It increases the contrast between blue sky and clouds. Add to that polarizing and you are seeing postcards everyday. Cool

Since it's gonna be kinda mix sun and clouds next week or so, I'll grab the yellow ones.

If it's sunny all day, then I usually go for either the blue ones or the Brown/Amber depending on my mood.laughing

Brown, graduated, photochromic, non-polarized as some car displays disappear with them.

Can’t participate in the poll, because these are my sunglasses

I am changing my tint daily, to switch things up. Quality is good, they are not Oakleys, but still. makes life more interesting. people don’t think I use the same glasses all the time.

In theory black/neutral grey. But I found some aviator sunglasses at the side of the road with a blue/mirror color on the outside, but the view isn’t too blue. I don’t know how that works.

Yellow looks terrific, in my opinion. That is not so universal, but amazing

My vote is Brown or Amber because of how it makes colors so vibrant. Since they don’t block too much light and increase contrast I can get away with using them on those cloudy days when it’s still bright and into dusk/dawn. The color contrast reason transfers over to my love for 4000K tint in LEDs!
