I am going to be at Zion,Bryce,and the Arches end of May or early June, and need some experienced advice please.
I was all set to purchase an ND grad filter set up and start practicing, so I can better deal with canyon/skyline exposure and not always golden hour photography. Couldn't decide if I should buy a holder, or go with the Moose Petersen hand held filter method.
Then I read an article about how HDR has replaced the need for grad filters .
I have seen some HDR pictures that I really liked, but have read opinions, that it's very easy to make your HDR 'S cartoonish by going to far.
Im not sure how to know when your picture crosse the line to overdone, maybe its just personal taste,thats probably a whole other post.

Back to dealing with the canyons,any thoughts?

Thank You
David S
