help with a nice sky

I'm trying to make the sky and the rest of the picture blend nicely, but as you can see there is a diffirence between where thy sky and water meet. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it. also I'm pretty new to PS so things explained very basically would be great.

some airbrush, selections, contrast/brightness on those selections, more airbrushing, lots of layers for the airbrushing (blank layers), and that's about it.

Hi There

Forgive me if I am not grasping your intent properly. But shouldn't there be more of a distinction between sky and water on the horizon?

And perhaps a photo filter could be applied to warm up the water with such a warm sky.
