You need to dilute your second (or First) antibody further.  Also cut down your second antibody incubation (we do 30 minutes). 
What you really should do is a series of dilutions of antibody to find the best for a 30 second exposure (hope that makes sense). 
Actually, Amersham suggests this in their manual for ECL don't they?
Good luck
