If you don't want to carry lots of stuff on vacation (and who needs that!) you may want to simply consider adding a graduated filter in Photoshop after the fact. Occasionally you may need to take a couple of shots at different exposures if you have a really contrasty lighting situation.

It may be a more convenient solution. The effect of graduated filters on the camera lens varies depending on your focal length and f-stop. That limits your options. I find the Photoshop version much more controllable and more convenient.

BRILLIANT idea - I have to work with graduated filters in Photoshop and hone my skill.  I know I have had trouble placing them correctly in Camera Raw, but am sure if I'm determined I may get better results!
