Tried out the Cokin filters this evening. Sun was behind me and the colours were very nice! Not particularly great subject matter but hey ho. I stacked a couple of ND grads, noticed the pics were quite soft even at F22 and using a lens that is normally sharp sharp.

Try using your lens at f11 or at the most f16 and your photo will be sharper. At very high f-stops there is something called lens diffraction which has the effect of softening the look of the detail in your images. This article will explain it better than I can.

I found if I stacked Cokin filters together I would get a strong magenta/red colour cast to the photo. They aren't as neutral as they should be. Lee filters are far better in terms of a neutral colour.
