When the sky is not as blue as one wishes, the setting sun not as radiant, or if one wishes to add a touch of personal color, the colored graduated filters are the right answer. They darken one part of the image (most often the upper part) by adding the appropriate tint, blue, tobacco, sunset...
Gradual Blue filters are available in 5 variations. They are very useful for enhancing a grey and lackluster sky by giving it a sunnier aspect, something that a polarizing filter cannot do under these circumstances. It is perfect for those who do not want a filter effect to be visible!
