Are you watching the histogram and the highlight blinkies?

I like to use minus exposure compensation until the is a small flat spot on the right side of the histogram.

I also consider the overall dynamic range of my image - it's entirely possible that the sky will be blown out if my subject is properly exposed. In some cases the blown area is something I can crop off, so I make my exposure compensation accordingly.
