Using a 10 stop ND filter seems to distort auto exposure.

I plan to shoot some photos across ponds. To try to get a good reflection I bought a 10 stop ND filter (Breakthrough). I tried it his morning to see how it might work.

The images were shot with my Canon 5D IV, 24-70 lens. exif should have the rest of the data.

Shot without filter.

Shot with filter with no compensation

Shot with the filter and significant compensation

Why is the photo with the filter and no compensation so dark? Is it the camera or me?

Thank you for trying to help.
