Cokin Landscape Kit 1 £50, $67
So you’ve composed a stunning landscape shot, only to find it ends up looking bland or washed-out. That’s where this kit comes in handy. There’s a blue-to-clear graduated filter that’s ideal for restoring colour saturation to a bright sky, or if you want to spice up a sunset then the graduated warming filter will do the trick. A conventional warming filter completes the trio and adds a retro vibe. All are 84mm-wide P-Series filters and will cover up to an 82mm lens.
Each filter works well and helps you get attractive shots without needing to spend time editing. However, there’s no escaping the fact that you’ll get more control by using software to adjust colours, while a conventional graduated ND filter is a better bet for preventing blown-out skies.
