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

It's a nice shot either way Phill. Although I'm viewing on a phone screen so not seeing all the detail at the moment.

For one shot with no filters , my default would be to protect the highlights, and lighten the shadows afterwards. But I find this creates more noise in the shadows.

But in reality I'd use ND grad's, or bracket the exposures and blend together afterwards. In fact at the weekend on Bamford Edge even a 3 stop ND grad wasn't enough so did both! Haven't processed them yet though.
