The filter does reduce the light entering the camera by 4 stops but that doesn't mean your images will come out darker it just means that the shutter will stay open for longer , your camera will always try to expose the image correctly by changing the shutter speed or aperture or ISO unless your shooting in manual .
To get a darker image you will need to under expose your shots by dialing in some negative exposure compensation , usually these filters are used to get a longer exposure to capture motion blur in scenes like flowing water , fast moving clouds , waving fields of corn etc .
Could you tell us how your using it and the camera settings your using .
