Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed.

Lee Grad ND filters are part clear, part neutral density (available in grades of .3 (1 stop), .6 (2 stops), .9 (3 stops)). They allow the transition to be blended into the scene, often imperceptibly. A neutral density .6-to-clear, with a two stop differential, will generally compensate the average bright sky-to-foreground situation and is also the most popular density of the series.

Certain Lee graduated neutral density filters are available with soft or hard transitions from dark to clear. The soft edge is recommended for wide angle lenses and the hard edge is recommended for normal and longer lenses.

Lee graduated resin filters are 4 x 6" (100 x 150mm) x 2mm thick. The 6" length allows for adjustment of the filter within the holder.

    Graduated Neutral Density Soft Filter Set is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality control issues The set I received had water marks. I thought I could cleaned them out but they stubbornly refuse to be removed. There were also tiny specks not alike shimmering stars in the night light when I brought 2 of the filters to the sun light. I compared these filters with the hard graduated ND I own and did not see the same defects. I retuned them for exchange. Surprising this happened since these filters are supposed to be hand made. I would still recommend them, just check for quality of the set you receive.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cost-Effective ND Filtration I am a user of both Singh-Ray and Lee filters. Lee soft ND filters are less expensive than the Singh-Ray counterparts and are a very compelling choice if cost is your major concern. I do like the look more of the soft Singh-Ray filters, but the overall difference is negligible at best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds back the sky, no color cast This is an ABSOLUTE MUST for landscape photographers! I'd been introduced to ND grads through a few photography books I'd read from Lee Frost. However, their value didn't strike me until I read Galen Rowell's account of how critical they are to acheiving the appropriate dynamic range within an image of the sky/foreground. I have far more confidence in being able to correctly expose a landscape photograph accurately as my eyes would see it by reducing the dynamic range enough so that the camera's sensor can register it without washing out the sky or darkening out the foreground. Here is why I picked the SOFT Filter KIT: 1. Soft--My horizon lines usually contain something interesting such as a tree or a building...a Hard Edge would not work well for this. A softer transition is necessary. 2. (.3,.6, and .9 kit) The sky is typically 3-4 stops (give or take a stop) brighter than the foreground. Much of the difference in brightness will depend upon where the light falls in the foreground + shadows. In order to properly expose both you may need 4 stops or more of ND gradiation. That's why the kit is better than buying seperately. You may also notice the value bonus of buying all three together rather than seperately. Build Quality: Rather Nice. Not much to say here since I haven't dropped the filters and I hope that I don't. They'll fit loose enough in the holder so that up-down is easy while being securely in place. They aren't sharp on the edges so they're easy to hold. Recommendation: If you're serious about landscape photography you'll have bought this kit (or one by a similar brand) yesterday!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal We all know what graduated filters do, so I won't go into that. These do their job wonderfully. The graduation of the filter is smooth and level (a problem with cheaper products). The filter is truly color-neutral, and the optical construction is clear and imparts no distortion. There's a reason these are some of the best-selling grads; don't waste your money on cheaper alternatives because you'll eventually end up buying these anyway.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing beats getting it right in camera These are vital to anyone serious about landscape photography. Computer programs cannot bring the level of detail out of a shot better than these can preserve it. There isn't a serious photographer around who wouldn't agree its better to get it right in camera than try to fix things in software and these will allow you to do it. These filters I've found are best used in situations where there isn't a clear line that it would be easy to place a hard edge ND grad such as shooting in mountains or shooting with foreground subjects that extend from the foreground into the sky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ND Grad filters These are the best ND Grad filters I have used. I used Cokin filters in the past. When I upgraded my lenses, I had to upgrade my filters as well since the Cokin P filters would not cover my new 77mm lenses. I can see a vast improvement from the Cokin filters to the LEE filters. With Cokin I would get a magenta color cast. With the LEE filters, there is no color cast.The 4x6 size is great. I can cover a lot of my lens to get the shots that I want. The filters are sturdy and well made. Yes, they are a little bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. If you want good quality filters, then you'll have to pay a little extra.It is nice to get the image right in the camera so I can spend more time out shooting and less time in front of a computer trying to tweak my images.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving These Filters! I wanted a nice set of soft edge GND filters to use in my sunrise & sunset landscape work. I purchased a different, heavily advertised brand from another retailer and was horribly disappointed at a seemingly non-correctable color cast the filters created in my images. Needless to say, I returned those filters and started researching other brands by reading the reviews here at B&H. I decided to purchase the Lee filter set and could not be happier! Nice set of light weight filters and no color cast! Although I have only had a couple of occasions to play with them, I am loving the results. Kudos to B&H for their usual excellent service as well as providing a resource to research purchases!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LEE Graduated ND Soft filter set 4x6. I use these filters with my Canon 5D Mk-II and 24 mm Tilt Shift lens for landscape photography. This filter set is an invaluable tool. I am using the product for darking the sky and reducing glare on snow/water in Landscape/Seascape photography. The large (4x6)size makes them easy to use and can be used without a holder. The Neutral Density filter will greatly improve your landscape photos. They create a perfect balance between birght and dark backgrounds and saves post imaging processing.
