Best ND filters for sunset shots?

I have been using a Canon 7D and a Canon 5D MIII for sunset shots over the ocean.  I use the Sigma 50-500mm at 500mm for those shots.
To get reasonable exposures before the sun is almost set I have been setting the aperture very high f/32.
I just realized that I'm an idiot and the high f values are reducing resolution.

As far as I can tell I have 2 options; 
1) Two polarizing filters one linear and one circular
2) ND filters
I'd appreciate any recommendations, personal experience etc.
I don't take these sort of shots a lot and I don't make money off of them so I would like "good enough", ie cheap options if anyone has them.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
