//An entity query expression to combine the filter expressions and property expressions for the query.
EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression = new EntityQueryExpression()
{

 Criteria = EntityFilter,
 Properties = EntityProperties,
 AttributeQuery = new AttributeQueryExpression()
 {
  Criteria = AttributeFilter,
  Properties = AttributeProperties
 },
 LabelQuery = labelQuery

};

//Retrieve the metadata for the query without a ClientVersionStamp
RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse initialRequest = getMetadataChanges(entityQueryExpression, null, DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet);



protected RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse getMetadataChanges(
 EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression,
 String clientVersionStamp,
 DeletedMetadataFilters deletedMetadataFilter)
{
 RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest retrieveMetadataChangesRequest = new RetrieveMetadataChangesRequest()
 {
  Query = entityQueryExpression,
