Graduated Neutral Density (GND)
Graduated ND filters are used to reduce the contrast difference of a composition. They allow for a well-balanced image; they are the filters most used by landscape photographers to yield both harmonious skies and detailed foregrounds at once. With these filters, images which are impossible to obtain in digital post-processing can be created.
Cokin Z153 Neutral Grey ND4
This ND plain filter reduces the amount of light reaching the film, but without affecting the balance. Authorizes a 2 stops Shutter speed/Aperture decrease.
Gradual ND4 / Z121M
Cokin graduated ND filters are just the ticket for landscapes where the sky is particularly bright -and thus susceptible to being over-exposed - or when you want a darker, moodier sky. The filter retains normal colour balance across the visible spectrum, with a progressive graduation from the middle to the top of the filter. For those familiar with the Cokin line, the Z121M filter has the same colour as the 121 filter, but a lower tone.
Gradual ND8 filter (Z121)
This Gradual Neutral Grey reduces the total amount of light reaching the film, but without affecting the colour balance. It restores the balance between the main subject and the foreground/background
