A yellow filter will correct the spectral sensitivity of B&W film a bit closer to that of our eyes. It won't do much for for blue skies and nothing for bright skies. If you suffer from harsh contrasts in your street photography, you may be interested in trying XP2. It has a high sensitivity and can deal with contrast like no other film I know.
