    I think 2F's suggestion of using a blue filter is good.
    Shadows and shade have a bigger blue content, and using a yellow or orange filter deepens them even more.

    But if, as was in the question, you like to darken a blue sky, there is no way round a yellow (or yellow-green) or orange filter.
    He needs to expose and develop his film differently to control the contrast between shadows and sky and forget about the filter idea altogether.
    Regards

    Yet, sometimes all you need to do is as simple as putting a filter in front of the lens.

    Or (for those of that church):

    What would Adams do? Put a filter on his lens.

    No need for such a fear.
    Just try the easy thing first. Makes sense, doesn't it?
    It's up to you to decide what the easy thing is.
