Graduated neutral density filters allow photographers to create the mood or emotion of an image by controlling the amount of light in a scene. In this image created on a Maui Photo Tour, a 10 stop neutral density filter was used. Using this filter brought the exposure down from the top portion of the image which allowed the use of a slow shutter speed which turned the water into a swirling mist. This dramatically changed the mood and emotion of the scene.
