I don't use these a lot as I am not a landscape photographer but I am exploring what I can do with them just to see what happens.
My question is when and where do people us these?
In lightroom or in PS?
After colour corrections are all finished?
Looking forward to hearing form you all

I'd do it in PS, but I don't think there's a right way to apply them. Best to experiment I think -- it may differ for different images.
(are you using Color Efex for this?)

Julie, I use them in Lr and PS, mostly to mask areas instead of painting with a brush on mask; or a combination of the two. Whichever method is faster and give good end result. I'm not necessarily finished after colour correction. Can still sharpen, de-noise, brighten, darken or whatever certain areas more than other other ones etc. I also use the radial graduated tool often.
Hope this helps
