That really works well when the original sky has no features. I tried to replace a dull sky with some blotches of blue with a new, more vibrant sky using this method. The blotches of blue showed through when I applied the layer mask - even though they had appeared to be selected in the 'select colour range' process. Where did I go wrong?
