I need help with long exposures

So I bought two ND filters (10 and 3 stops) for my Xt10 and 16-50mm and I've been trying to shoot things with them and these are my results. (I was just experimenting in my garden, not shooting probably)

Esspecialy the last one was a problem. I can't get the exposure or something else right but i don't know what. I can only either get the highlights right, leaving the rest of the image totally black, or I can partially get some shadows decently exposed but some are still totally black. Most of these exposures were on for about 2-4 minutes at F11. I think it's the dynamic range, but I don't know. I know that these conditions weren't the best (it was quite cloudy and late in the afternoon). I will go and shoot more probably this weekend, but I just want to know what I'am doing wrong.
