[QUOTE=BetterSense;791623]I tend to not like leaving plain white borders, especially when a light area of the image (like the sky) runs right to the edge of the print. QUOTE]
You may be trying to solve the wrong problem. If you burn in your sky more there will be a grey tone that stops at the white border. If it is difficult with the same over all filter, try 0 or 00 for the burn. Search here for Les McLean on split grade printing. If you can't do this you may need to increase your exposure when you shoot the picture or add a filter to darken the sky-clouds. Try bracketing by two stops in this situation and see if it is easier to print the negative.
