I rarely use a lens hood for my landscape shots. The main reason is the incompatibility with my graduated filter set (which I use constantly.) The second reason is simply a lack of necessity; experimentation has shown that hoods make little difference (with a careful shot setup.)

As a side note, I designed and prototyped several inexpensive lens hoods (for personal use) that were compatible with my filter holder. But the lack of necessity prevented further spending for a production model.
