I'm a budget person too But never come saying that a GND and blending gets the same. It is quite different and there are a lot of different things in which a GND can produce a better result than exposure blending and might actually be the only way to archive the effect you are looking for (an example is longer shutterspeeds needing to be selectively darkened to work).

I do exposure blending for some photos as well though, and it produces the more HDR like effect.

I agree that, if possible, a set of GNDs is usually the best way to go. However, those with point-and-shoot cameras usually don't have this option (unless the company makes them specifically for the model of camera), so the 2-exposure method, while complicated, will produce excellent results with practice. I've seen some amazing stuff done with this method that I would've guessed used a GND...unfortunately I won't post them because they're not mine

Oh and sorry for the misunderstanding, when I said "blending" I didn't mean the traditional HDR version of blending. I'm talking about having 2 layers. The one on the bottom is exposed for the sky, while the one on the top is exposed for the FG. You just erase the sky on the top layer so the bottom layer shows through. I agree, HDR is MUCH different from GND

No you are partly right here, but I did know what you meant about the blending though Still produces a different result but it works if you don't have the option.

By the way this is a very good beginner's guide for this subject, sound advice all around. I wasn't trying to overshadow that with my little suggestion

Thanks Eric. From the above posts I assume you're a new mod? Don't know how new any more, but congrats anyway. Somehow, I've missed it.

Don't have Tiffen over here so I can't make up any impressions. From what I've heard however, they seem to be nice!
