settings advice

Having had reasonable success with "ghosting" people in subways etc using shutter speeds of about 1.5 secs etc, wondering as today i was unable to get same effect in normal daylight, now obviously it may well be me and if it is can someone point me in the right direction or if its more the "Physics" side of it then let me know
Basically although not people today but stood at a weir closing down to F22 in manual unable to get a slow enough shutter speed without it looking like its been took in blizzard. Tried various different settings all to no avail.
Today was using a D300 and a 17 55 on a tripod with a remote. Any settings to try gratefully recieved.
Did try having a "Lunch break" in wetherspoons but somehow it all seemed down hill from then on

Re: settings advice

If you have lens stopped right down, at ISO100 & still to fast a shutter speed, then it's time for some ND filters.

Re: settings advice

I did wonder about a filter actually will go and see whats about tomorrow are they all at one degree of variation or can you get various degrees of darkening , plus i presume after you then have to use abit of exposure compensation if u leave the filter in place. for normal setting shots.
Did get some nice ones in Tewksbury Abbey thou.

Nope. The purpose of the filter is to reduce the amount of light reaching the sensor by x stops (according to which ND you are using). You shouldn't be adjusting anything to compensate.

Alternatively go shoot it late afternoon, early evening with less light

BTW, if you have a polariser, that usually drops the light by 1.5 -> 2 stops
