    why did u use an ND filter for sunset shots? or was it graduated ND? was it to capture unusual lighting?

    ND filter cuts the stop down... especially gradual ND filter cos it cuts the sky brightness down if it is 2 bright thus it does gives a better control in overexposure and underexposure between the sky and the foreground or subject if metered for the sky/sun.

    thanks for the info. i was just thinking, if using a grad ND, how will the camera meter ... cos u want the sky to be proprely exposed so ideally u should meter the sky through the grad ND.. if u only have centre-weighted metering and can't meter off-centre, u can only estimate?

    like, meter the sky without ND, then lengthen the exposure based what ND factor u're using?

    Somehow, filters are created to allow pple to have creative shots at various conditions.

    Choosing to use any filters usually is a personal preference. No right or wrong rule. Some can even choose a sunset filter for a sunrise shot. Who cares?

    Right filter, wrong filter, got filter, no filter, so long can make any audience go "WOW!" it's a good shot.

    actually you don't need any filters, just that i'm worried there'll be scratches on my lens, that's why i put a filter there
