Re: How best to expose a sunset without a graduated filter?

Hi

Are you shooting in raw or jpg as you refer to original. If you shoot in raw you have a lot more flexibility to pull highlights down and shadows up.

Personally I would use bracket exposure to get three raw images 1 stop apart and then merge together in photoshop. A graduated mask can be simulated quite nicely with a photoshop layer mask.
