How many stops ND filter are you all using for daytime rig shots? Any specific brand recommendations you use?

First rig shot for a client. I learned a lot from viewing the final version. There are so many little details that go into a good shot. The only way is to get out there and do it. I was nervous as hell but I used all 3 cups and followed my notes that I took. Visualechos had provided some unbelievable tips for shooting and I can't thank him enough. Hopefully this is just the first of many.
The few issues I had were that for some reason my 7D metered my shot but in order to get a visible shot I had to over compensate by 10 stops atleast. I had a 10 stop filter on there.
I tried 3 different shot times, 6 sec, 4 sec,which is posted, and 2 sec. Each has a good perspective but this one worked for the client. The retouching I did was to clone out the rig, everything else is all original.
I also did not pay attention to where the shadow of the rig fell and I spent a lot of extra time cloning.
Let me know what you think and what I could do better.
Thanks
After the upload it looks really soft for some reason.

Thanks Andrew. Couldn't of done it without your help. Once I have been out rigging I see all the little issues that can make or break a good shot. Go big or go home!
Can't wait to rig some more.

What's everyone using for a carrying case for their boom poles? I've tried a couple ski bags but the width and heights are too damn long! I've been looking at speaker stand and light stand bags as well.

This is the best I've found so far and I'm considering ordering this one,

Found another one earlier and forgot to post it. I looked at Guitar Center's website too and found this. Going to GC tomorrow to see if they have one in stock.

Its 58"x10"x5". I think there would be enough give on the width to make the 2" in length for my Rig-Pro 5' Booms.

I'd crop a bit more off the left side, but that looks pretty good. I think I'd have tried some very late w/out the filter, though.

I've seen a couple of golf-bag transportation hard-cases at the local thrift shops, and they seem like a good idea, as long as you pad the case a little bit. elsewhere in the thread, people have said they are using large shotgun cases, also.
