D40, 18-55 II handheld. Didn't even bother with my grad ND! I'm VERY pleased with these. The last time we had a sunset like this that I tried to shoot, I used my D80 and the exposure was all over the place with my grad ND. Had lots of blown highlights and maybe got one or two keepers. I must have been trying to out think it. Since I had the 35/2 on my D80 from shooting my little girl earlier in the day, I just grabbed the D40 this time and with minimal fuss it managed to get pretty great shots. Dunno, but whenever I try to do sunsets with my D80 the metering seems to be all over the place and it's quite a challenge. The D40 "just works". I'll have to try it next time with the D80 but without the grad ND too.
