The LEE Filter system requires using a filter holder rather than having a filter that screws into the lens. The beauty of this system is that you can stack filters, creating a better overall composition.

The Lee 0.9 Soft Graduated Neutral Density filter has a soft gradient making the use of this filter subtantially easier than those of the hard gradient filters.

I'm new to filters so I just got this 3 stops filter. I like HDR but not a fan of it, so I prefer to make a one shot image and GND filters are the best way to balance out the light. Though I heard that filters tend to degrade image if shooting directly towards sun, I haven't tried yet so can't tell. I did find, it was little hard to detect the transition due to Soft-Edge but over time I'd probably get used to it. I'm giving it 3 stars because of the price though all LEE filters are pricy to begin with.

    Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 150mm 0.9 Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

    Great quality overall with the Lee. Use them for sunset/sunrise shots to help tame the highlights and make blending images easier or unnecessary. Any added color cast is slight and easily fixed in post processing. Good bang for the buck on this one!

      Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 150mm 0.9 Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

      This filter saved me on a weekend shoot in Yosemite. The Valley is a challenging, high contrast locale, and the 3-stop filyer was a necessity.

        I am loving this filter. Yes I know you can add a graduated filter in post, but it is not the same as being able to see what you are getting while you are shooting the image. This filter has improved my shooting a great deal. Very happy with my purchase.

                  I enjoy taking landscape/seascape images and the Lee graduated filter helps me get the image right in camera which give me more flexibility in post. I have only had it for a couple of weeks and have used it twice. It does what it was designed to do very well. The only downside is the cost, but I guess you get what you pay for.

                        Great for extreme contrast situations like sun rises and sunsets. This is my third Lee filter and very happy with the color neutrality, and build quality. It is well protected in included carry case. Expensive but a quality product.

                            This was my first experience with a graduated neutral density filter. It was more soft than I realized. I'll probably be buying the hard-edge version as well. But the few times I used it, it worked. Made editing scenes with bright skies much easier.

                              Comments about LEE Filters 100 x 150mm 0.9 Soft-Edge Graduated Neutral Density Filter:

                              This is a fantastic filter for shooting at or near the sun. The soft edge is really forgiving for treelines, mountains, or really anything else that is not a straight edge which is so common for most scenes in a hilly or mountainous area. It is a little heavy for shooting opposite the sun, but I still think it's easier to lighten a sky in post processing than to darken one.

                                Lee is simply the standard for graduated neutral density filters. I wouldn't even think about going out on a landscape photography shoot without them.
