Often, you want to balance light intensity between two areas within a scene. This is important outdoors to allow more sky detail while properly exposing the foreground.
Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky, exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark, underexposed. By using the color graduate ND, the ability to balance both areas at once is provided.
Tiffen Digital HT® Filters
Made from the purest optical quality glass and Tiffen's award-winning ColorCore technology, Tiffen Digital HT - High Transmission - filters offer a new breakthrough in multi-coating technology.
Imagine, a double-sided coated filter with the strength of titanium, unmatched scratch-resistant durability and worry-free cleaning.
Other coated filters on the market today cautiously suggest delicate, if any, cleaning procedures, in fear of destroying the coating (and thereby the filter).
Not with the Digital HT filters - the secret is in the titanium coating that makes it extremely durable and protects against damage and mark up.
And that's not all these High Transmission filters feature a low profile titanium finish ring and anti-reflective black lock ring, with a distinctive titanium finish that sets these filters apart from the rest.
Digital HT filters are made in the USA and come with a 10-year warranty, your guarantee of quality assurance.
Digital HT filters are available as the following filters: Digital Ultra Clear, Haze 86 (with 86% UV absorption), Circular Polarizer, 812® Warming Filter, ND .06, ND 1.2, Soft/FX® 3, Star 4 Point 2, and Color-Grad® ND.0.6 in sizes 52mm-82mm.

what can i say, it performs its function
Anyone beginning in landscape photography should consider a graduated neutral density filter. for some conditions it solves the problem. For others it eases the use of editting software.
I needed to balance bright sky lighting, since we have little haze in Colorado, with a contrasted foreground. What a great filter to mimic the human eye.
