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 .
Well I am on Manual, ISO of 100 and I started AV at 14 and went up to 32... it's like nothing is wanting to work and I've just been looking at my camera again and it doesn't seem to want to autofocus on any of my lenses?! Maybe my camera is about to pop to the fluffy clouds??
