Ya you cant get the shutter speed without an actual ND filter. I have an ND 8 already but for sunset shots i still want the foreground to be well light, just the sunset toned down and not overexposed.

I use the ND filter in Nik but it doesn't beat using an ND filter in just the right way in a landscape.

Save even more money and download a free trial of a plug-in such as Nik Color Efex Pro 4 - one of the presets is a ND filter and is fully-configurable, and you won't get the problems with physical filters (screw-in or "Lee"-type) where the horizon is uneven.

Alternatively consider blending shots exposed for the sky and foreground
