Watch for vignetting when you go wide with a stack of filters, period. You can sometimes find filters with an extra-narrow mount when you have a lens design that tends to vignette with thicker mounts, though such filters also come at a premium price and usually don't stack.

Love the look that ND filters give you on really long exposures! I bought some for my Nikon 14-24, expensive but if you are looking for accurate color on long exposures it's a price you have to pay.

Ive pretty much given up on stacked ND filters in favor of variable ND filter, I find I like it much more. I cant attest to the difference in quality, since both were of the economy variant and I am not extensively versed in this aspect... however my VND is something I truly cherish!





Thanks for all the comments, very helpful!
Andrew

`

But by cross polarizing [use of your V-ND] you
deny yourself access to basic polarizing which
this shot [and by extension, many others] cries
out for. You'd do well to watch the clearance or
inventory clean-out sales where a slow selling
item like a large ND 3.0 is likely to go cheap

There will be some who think "But, eliminating
the reflective quality of water and wet surfaces
would kill many shots like this one". Not that I
disagree with that sentiment. I only disagree
that a polarizer *eliminates* reflections. Thaz
a very limited outlook. A polarizer *controls*
reflections. IOW it can also ENHANCE the wet
look by favoring the reflections vs the overall
exposure ... just the OPPOSITE of eliminating
them. As you might surmise, it happens at 90
degrees away from the "eliminate" position
