filter/exclude confusion ???

I am running rsync -avz from [A], to pull a directory from [B].
I want to _exclude_ several directories on [B] from being pulled across.
Since these directories have short names, I hope that I can either
specify them inline rsyncd.conf on [B]; or, inline to the CLI on [A].
I am confused with man rsyncd.conf, where the manpage states:
"it only applies on the daemon"
I have tried specifying this several ways, in the CLI on [A]:
-f - /bragi/ \
-f - /brono/ \
-f - /jord/ \
-f - /loki/ \
-f - /odin/ \
_both_ before and _after_ specifying source and destination.
I know that the rest of the syntax I am using is correct, because
_without_ those filters, it brings everything across ;<
What am I missing?
Dare to fix things before they break . . .
Our capacity for understanding is inversely proportional to how much
we think we know. The more I know, the more I know I don't know . . .
