hi i am some what confused i have recently became interested in long exposure times and using filters my latest toy is the b+w 10stop filter, if i am taking a shot of say a castle where the sky is very bright and the castle is dark do i use a nd filter to get the right exp? i also had a problem with a hama shutter release remote i used M and bulb mode but it would not stay open longer than 3/4 mins?
am i missing something?

An ND filter will darken everything by the same number of stops. HD is the best way to go in order to preserve details in the shadows. There are graduated ND filters that can be positioned over the lens to just cover the area of the sky and you might meet with success using one.
I am not familiar with the Hama shutter release.
