Filter effects from the K-5

I'm having a barrel of fun experimenting with my new K-5. Just for giggles, here are some filter effects, done within the camera and saved as new images. I particularly like the poster and color extraction effects. What a blast!

Here's the original image:

Here's the poster effect, taking ranges of gradient colors and making them solid colors. I rather like this one:

Of course, there is a standard conversion from color to black and white:

This filter extracts the color of your choice and makes the rest of the photo black & white. Interesting!

This one reverses all colors to create a color negative. Reminds me of an x-ray.

And finally, here is the "water color" filter:

There are many more filters available, but these are just a few. I thought you might enjoy seeing them. This K-5 is a lot of fun!

That is nice but to be fair these are simple effects in photoshop.
