Re: Which strength filter for sunrise?
What kind of damage? During sunset / sunrise the amount of UV is low (that's why the sky appears reddish *hint*). The amount of light is measured and controlled by the camera or you (based on metering results) and therefore it's the same amount of light as if you shoot something else.
