    Norm for stacking is ND over GND or vice versa or any of them in between.

    Why will u want to stack ur CPL over ur UV as it do more harm in iq degradation than good?

    I do that to get vignetting effect on my photos, as I am still a noob in post processing and dunno how to do vignetting in Photoshop.

    And they say vignetting is for those pro-wanna-be. So all my photos now will have vignetting. Pls C&C other things other than the vignetting in the photos I post, OK? It's part of my plan to turn Pro.

    i have decided that from now on i will stack 20 b+w uv filters in front of all my lenses.

    got added effect of making every lens look like a telephoto lens. never mind that my 10-20 will just take very black pictures with a bit of the picture in the middle.. the part that can be seen will be VERY VERY sharp, because defintiely not more uv light to spoil the picture. plus i pay good money for the filter, so it will improve the picture quality one........

    at the same time, even if got goat drop down from heavens and land on my lens, it will not crack. can retain resale value.

    Besides, the thread title is too general for people to even get any vague idea of what exactly is supposed to be learned from any of the posts.

    Then again, I'm one of the few (or maybe not) bo liao people to keep checking this thread and reading all bo liao (and not) posts!

    No, quite serious actually. The problem is some of these filters are quite dark, but let through the more harmful rays. Then we are not even aware until later that we got image burn-in liao.

    Dun want your eyes to see camera lines and focal points imprinted onto it permanently
