In the current filter tool, if you put things in more than one filter column, the resulting set of images must mach ALL of the filter elements to be shown. In other words the filter elements are in an AND reiationship. For example: Keyword=Landscape, AND Lens=15mm.

What one cannot do with the filters (without using the "contains all" form of a text filter) is to have the filter elements be in an OR relationship. For example, Keyword=Panorama OR lens=15mm. What I think would work is allow the user to put an AND or OR in between each filter column in the filter tool (AND being the default).

To make it really stellar, also provide the user the ability to put parenthesis between columns as well. For another example, Keyword=Panorama AND ( Lens=15mm OR Lens=12mm ). In other words, give us more boolean capability in the filter pane.
