Helping to balance exposure when working in high-contrast situations, the 100 x 150mm Soft Graduated Neutral Density 0.9 Filter from LEE Filters is specifically designed to selectively control brightness in difficult lighting. The filter's design places the 0.9, 3-stop density at the top of the filter and then transitions to clear by the center of the filter for a gradual, natural appearance. The soft-edge transition between the density and clear areas is well-suited for photographing scenes with an indistinct or undefined horizon line, as well as when working with wide-angle lenses. This filter is constructed from optical resin that is both durable and helps to maintain high clarity, and is compatible with the LEE 100mm filter holder.

LEE Filters 9NDG-S Reviews
got this for a trip
I don't do much with landscapes but I was going to the Tetons in Jan and wanted this for sunsets. Of course it snowed everyday so I haven't got to use it yet. but seems to be good quality
The filter is perfect for sunny skies and darker ocean. Would not have got the shot otherwise.
A life changing product
I bought this bad boy after damaging my previous one wrestling an anaconda in the swamps. As soon as I pulled this out of my camera bag, hordes of screaming girls poured from the surrounding forest gasping at my incredible 0.9 ND. Comments such as it's so smooth and my god there's nothing 'soft' about that beauty' were commonplace. As I pushed it into the tight slot there were further gasps from the adoring masses, and as the light dimmed I got my shot off, it was perfect. The hard contrast between the bright mountainous top and the dark bushy bottom of the frame was eliminated, more gasps followed until I was done, the shot was 'in the bag' and I pulled the soft grad out of it's tight slot and carefully packed it away to disappointing 'awwww's from the crowd. My word what a day, if you don't own a 0.9 ND grad, get out and get one now (get the Lee ones) all joking aside, they are worth it.
I am using this filter very much , hard to keep it clean when I work by Ocean. for day time with strong Sun I used another 0.9 filter. Look to me glass is better
Game changer: filter will be a regular in my photography
Ive long awaited to add this filter to my collection, and now that I have it, I feel my photography has launched to a new level. The three additional stops added immensely helps to balance the exposure when you have a much brighter part of your composition, such as with a sunset or sunrise. This allows you to still expose for the bright parts without under-exposing the darker parts like the foreground and losing detail in the shadows. The resin filter is light and flexible, yet seemingly durable. Once in the filter holder, you can adjust it to align with the brighter parts of your picture by moving the filter up and down. The filter comes with a carrying case, but I recommend also using a cloth to wrap the filter before placing it in the case. I noticed when I first placed the filter in my holder, the edges scraped lightly. Fortunately this wont affect my images, but it shows the filter can scratch easily if you dont take full precautions to protect it. I recently stacked this 0.9 Grad ND with my Big Stopper with great success. To avoid unwanted colorization, place the 0.9 grad in the second filter slot from the lens first, set your exposure, and then slide the 10-stop ND into the first slot behind it and readjust the shutter speed.
bought for a wy trip
I haven't got to use it much but I think its going to work fine
Just what you would expect
It's a Lee filter and performs as advertised. The 3 stops lower on the skyline pops the foreground without under exposing it.
