Didn't know exactly where to post these questions. So, since they pertain to shooting landscapes, I settled on posting them here. Here are 3 bracketed images that I took yesterday. The gap between exposures was +/- 1.3 stops. All are straight OOC with no PP except for resizing, converting to JPG to post here. Please ignore the sensor dust in the sky. (I'll deal with that eventually....) View attachment 263404 View attachment 263405 Although this situation is a bit extreme, I am interested in shooting sunsets in fading light. I'm told that using an ND filter (in this case 3-stops) would be the best bet to deal with a situation like this where I want to capture both the fading light in the sky (Image #1) and the foliage in the shadows (Image #3). Is that correct? If so, what "stop range" (1 stop, 2 stop, 3 stop) ND filter would be most versatile for shooting something like these images (ie - fading light into a sunset with clouds)? Also, is there such a thing as a graduated ND filter? (I know that it exists in various software...). If so - what spec should I be looking for? If I'm totally offbase here, and an ND filter is not the way to go, what kind of filter or shooting technique (short of HDR or blending of images in post) would help? Thanks!
