Check out the settings in the 'Entries' thread DD! It was a matter of experimentation after I had the base exposure. I tried 30 seconds @f8 at one point but resulted in underexposure and too much movement of the bulrushes. 25 seconds @ f5 gave me a good result that I could work from. The ISO stayed at 100. My filter does leave a colour cast as has been noted several times before which can be removed. In addition, the gasket doesn't have a light tight seal which will effect exposure.
Have fun Jediboy, using that filter can be frustrating but equally enjoyable and rewarding.
