O.K. Nikonians...REALLY dumb question: I was taking sunset pixes at our local inland sea, and they came out very well.

I was using My 3-stop graduated N.D. filter for the first time, and I covered the top 1/2 of the lens to hold back the sky.

When I reviewed the images, I remembered how the image looked on my view camera ground glass...upside down!

So, by placing the filter on the top part of the lens, was I holding back the wrong part of the photo? Next time, should I consider the inverted inmage, and put the darker portion of the filter over the bottom of the lens, or does the correct orientation of the image in the DSLR viewfinder show where the filter needs to go?

Help!

It is a Fine and Pleasant Madness
