When is ISO 6400 OK?

What types of shots do you find hold up fairly well to high ISO?  I've found it sort of hit and miss, sometimes it works and other times it's too noisy by far.  In general I try to ETTR but I'm not disciplined enough on that, is that the difference I'm seeing?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Here are two unacceptable samples, with no noise reduction added.
