    I am not pro, but newbie.

    I find it in Singapore kind of strong sunlight environment, graduate ND8 (121S in Cokin Graduate ) is better for shooting sky and scenic, by darken the sky.

    Or 154 in Cokin Colour, for slower shutter time shots.

    Try ND8 as recommended. Perhaps brands such as Hoya and the more high-end B+W will be a better choice.
