i am seeing many photos taken in daylight where the shutter speead is 2/3 mins or longer. Example are:-

now i know a 10 stop filter is the answer but original shutter speed would have to have been high.

am i missing something here? are these just photos taken late in the day or is there some sort of image stacking?

Those were both shot when the light was pretty low. The first one is obviously either sunrise or sunset, and the second one shows a sky completely socked in with clouds. In such low light, you can easily get multi-minute exposures with a 10-stop ND. It's also possible to stack filters, of course, though doing so tends to exacerbate color casts and vignetting.

You can also use a 15- or 20-stop filter designed for solar photography, or a welding mask (the colour cast is easy to compensate for).

Sometimes what I do is take several bracketed shots like I was doing a HDR. I also take a few long exposure shots with the 10 stop ND on. Because the screen on the 1D3 is so bad I can't tell whether I got what I wanted so taking several shots is key.

I get back to the MAC and review. I will manually merge the bracketed shots using layer masks, then take my long exposure shots and do the same, masking the sky and water if it's in the shot. I'd do all colour matching and lens corrections in LR before doing that and work with the TIFFS in PS.

Those examples look like they were later in the day. During mid-day at f/10 I've gotten 30-45 sec shots depending on clouds/etc with a big Stopper. So it seems right. Shooting at f/22 vs like f/3.2 would make a big difference in time as well.
