Comments about B + W B + W 77mm #502 Color Graduated Filter - Dark Grey Neutral Density (ND):

Difficult to tell where the gradient starts & stops.
I have to look at the filter in the case against a white background to see the gradient. When I mount the filter on the lens the type engraved inside the lens has to be on the bottom to place the gradient at
the top.

Comments about B + W B + W 77mm #502 Color Graduated Filter - Dark Grey Neutral Density (ND):

It helps, but I'd prefer shading to a darker gray. It does have B&W's high mechanical and optical quality, and I do use it.

Comments about B + W B + W 77mm #502 Color Graduated Filter - Dark Grey Neutral Density (ND):

I use this to shoot waterfalls and other landscape scenes that require a graduated filtering of sky highlights. It's heavy, well made, and screws on/rotates easily. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a dot or arrow indicating when you have the filter perfectly rotated for darkest at top and horizontal gradation. I have had it "off" by 5 degrees or so, with unfortunate effects. I can never remember whether the top says "made in Germany," "F-Pro," or "B+W." I think the top center is over the "a" Germany, which is very difficult to remember. A red arrow or dot would be nice, but I'm not sure the competitors have that either.
