I am thinking about getting the ND filter for photos like this:

and

I know that they were taken during a day with few second exposure,
So Here is my question, What kind should i get?
I'm thinking about:

Tiffen 0.6 ND
Tiffen 0.9 ND
Tiffen 1.2 ND
Hoya NDX400

All for Sigma 10-20 (77mm)

I know that NDx400 is a great filter but for that purpose may be a little too dark, and I have it in 67mm :confused:

Which of the following would be the best for this type of photography?

You've seen the original source of these images but we haven't so have you made any efforts to find out more from the source? A simple friendly email/message (if possible) will probably get you further than all of our guesses.

They look to me like they were shot with B+W 106 (6 stop) or 110 (10 stop), probably the latter. Canon and the B+W's tend to show the amber cast that you see in both of those images you've linked to but I've read Nikon shooters who say they don't get the same amber cast (possibly due to differences in IR sensitivity between the brands). The hoya ndx400 doesn't have an amber cast with canon, if anything it's a bit on the cool side.

Maybe this will help:

and this:

A B+W 106 will go a long way, especially with a slim PL.

I've never used the Tiffen ND's, so can't comment on those.

Thanks for the link, great site.
Well I am just looking for general advice, from people that do rig photography.
Basically saying which one would be most usefull/ universal.
I am also looking for an opinion about tiffen filters as general brand quality compare to expensive ones like B+W.
