Do you use flash at all? The rock photo seems like you used one.

Do you feel the need to use flash for fill at all? Or does GND filters do the job for you always.
And yeah, I see your need for a 3 or even 4 stop GND for these shots, you lost a bit of detail in the shadows by holding the sky well, but hey, these are already close to perfect, if you used a 3 or 4 stop GND, these will be even better.
Next, how do you decide which GND to use? Meter highlights, meter shadows and go with a 1 stop difference?
Thanks for the time, Shahed. You convinced me about GND filters *and* a 12-24 range lens, I have both, now I have to use them
Ah, thanks for the reply. I have been reading too much Galen Rowell . He seems to have used fill flash quite a bit.d_ip said:Hi Anand,
I always like to shoot with the natural (God gifted) light. Every once in a while I use flash to fill the foreground shadow.
You are right on the money about metering. Meter highlight, meter shadows and go with a stop difference. But if you don't have the right filter (For me I need the 3 or 4 stop filter) than meter from the midtone or highlight, depends on the situation. The bottom line is I always try not to blow the highlight. It's very easy to fix the shadow at post-processing.
I'm in love shooting wide with GND. Hope to get some new picture soon.
