    On shooting topiary, I would try using a circular polarizing filter.  Topiary tends to be done with plants that have small, shiny leaves.  A polarizing filter could cut some of the glare off those leaves, effectively compressing the tonal range in the scene.  It may just allow you to bring a little more out of the shadows by increasing the exposure just slightly, shy of blowing out the highlights.

    Great idea, thanks!
