Hi, thanks for the comments. I set the shots up as I normally would for this type of scene - around F11 - F16 and then added 10 stops plus a 'bit'. It wasn't an exact science to be honest, I found that around 1 minute was about right in the end. But it sometimes took a couple of attempts, because cloud cover and sun poking through occasionally kept throwing it out.
You can't see a thing through the 10 stop filter and I used a 3 stop hard grad filter in most cases, so each shot meant composing, grad filter in place, test shot, check histogram, adjust, another test shot, unscrew grad filter, attach 10 stop filter, re-attach grad filter and shoot.
