I am keen to purchase a Hi-Tec 0.6 ND grad (soft) , with an interest to shoot landscape/water shots etc. However, I also read from various sources that a Circular Polarizer (CPL) is recommended for landscape shots as it can remove unwanted reflections from greenery & water etc. I understand that the CPL will decrease the exposure of the camera by around 2-stops. While the 0.6 ND grad is also a 2-stop equivalent.
Does people combine these 2 filters to use together? I wonder if that would create a too drastic outcome (underexpose)?
Any advice from those who had used a NDG &/or CPL? Thanks in advance
