    Bokeh of the lens are .

    For the cat shots, try to focus on the eyes, #2 is OOF. Try to go lower as well, it'll be nicer if you are at the level of your subject.

    Just to share my 2 cents worth.

    you got totally no idea how your camera work do you...

    ND8 is for use if you do not wanna change your aperture yet your shutter speed is going over the limit. So you wanna slow it down.

    For eg... taking waterfall in bright day light, you wanna slow down your shutter speed to take nice silky smooth water falling down. but your aperture already max out. thats when you use your ND8.

    ND8 not suppose to make it washout, its your setting that makes it wash out. Most likely you have the wrong metering or your metering set to something like +1 or +.5, thats y it look over expose.
