Do not forget to get rid of the reflections in the water as they are distracting and make it obvious that it was photoshopped in (the Sky).
They look like some buildings that were near the edge.

To do something like this, I think a section of water without reflections would work better. Here is one where I used some water, without any reflections to speak of. I softened the horizon a bit, to give the perception of distance, and then reflected the clouds some back off of the water.

Re: Compositing and Colouring

you know what we're all forgeting? come on! this is an old rule to follow. Atmospheric perspective. as the distance in a photo is increased, the object should appear lighter, so in these the sky nearest to the horizon line should be fairly lighter than the sky closer in perspective or at the top of the image.

Re: Compositing and Colouring

Hi Cleve,

Some important points have been suggested, firstly Snook's observation that the water part of your composited image contains a reflection that would require an effort to significantly subdue or remove. Secondly, namphoto's atmospheric perspective issue would need to be dealt with.

With those matters in mind I constructed a composite and adjusted the tonal and color values to look something like what I believe you desire.

Next, just for comparison purposes, I added some land at the horizon, which I think looks even more realistic.

In the last example, I added a tree line and the expected reflection in the water.

The point is, that when doing a composite of this type, it's crucial that the individual elements can be realistically combined.
