Do you use graduated or hard edge filters? Any specific stops reduction for the filters?

Both have a use. Hard edge is used when you have a definite straight horizon.
I use the graduated more often as I tend to go with subjects that do not have a definite line and I can blend the light a bit.

I would suggest getting several like 2 stops 3  and 4, then you stack and get various densities.

I agree with ray5 on both the 24-70 point & filter recommendations.

I wish I had a set of Lee filters with me when I went. Getting an extra stop or two-three from some of the skies would have been nice. I'm not one to do it in post, it never looks as good. I almost want to redo the trip as much because I now have the filters as how beautiful both places are. I was shooting 7D exclusively at the time and used the 24-70 most often followed by an UWA and then a 70-200. I shot more landscape than wildlife though.
Ok. Which UWA did you use? In the Lee filters would you suggest Resin or Glass? I am ok paying the extra, in the long term I have found is waiting and buying the right one turns out to be cheaper in the long term than buying and then trading. Is there a steep learning curve? Obviously I enjoy the convenience of the screw on filters but perhaps they are not that versatile? They are not cheap either. My Singh Ray cost me almost $400!
