Hey Jeff:

When I use a graduated ND filter on my Mamiya, I use a filter with a soft transition rather than a hard-edged version. Shooting from a tripod (which I do with most of my landscape shots), I note the location of the horizon and then, viewing the lens from the front of the camera, position the filter over the lens to correspond with the horizon location that I noted from the viewfinder. I tend to move the transition a little further into the image because the effect is very gradual with the soft-edge transition ND filter.
