Ok as said, stability....that means having a GOOD tripod especially for when it comes to long exposures because any little sense of movement will be exaggerated greatly. A few other are shooting in what looks to be very harsh light and anything less than a nd400 isn't going to get the job done and shooting at f32? That isn't a solution but rather a problem itself--diffraction big time. This here  will help you understand what that is if you don't know  almost guarantee you that your shots will be very soft.

One way to work around this is to shoot at better times of the day. Light is everything in photography and when it's low (before sunrise or after sunset) you can get some awesome long exposures. I use a Fotodiox ND8 backed up by a Fotodiox CPL (which equals another stop loss for light) and have found that shooting the way I suggested works pretty darn well
