Clear sky areas are the ones that come to mind first and white spots and
snakes flying through the sky don't make me happy. Miss matched colors
are very noticeable in those areas. Especially if I have used opaque on
the film to produce a white spot to begin with. And it is painful to not
be able to finish an otherwise perfect print.

If I can cut corners I will, so spots that can be blended less than
perfectly are okay. Also seems like sky area spotting will invite halos.
