manual is the ONLY way you'll learn to control the capture, is far more fun and relatively 'safe' now with digital (in that you can instantly preview the results), any other methodology you use is a compromise.

Hello friends,

thank you all for your valuable replies.

Yes, I can see I need to work more at this and learn to use manual mode.

Er, I have one more burning question, and it may be a stupid one!
When you meter a landscape, do you do this before you put an ND grad in your filter holder? If so, how do you work out which filter you need?

So far, I've been taking photos with any filter in place, and hope for the best.

I need to explain, that not long after I bought my 450D, my wife had an operation, so I had to look after her and put in more hours at my part-time job. So not much playtime. Last week she went back to work, so now I need to try and use any spare time for photography, as I find it. Oh, and not to forget the tripod!
