Hi Dorian, and welcome to Photoshop!
Theres some techniques on EPZ that can help with things like replacing a sky, - just go to the techniques section and enter a search.
This sky replacement looks incomplete, as theres white areas still visible through the trees, especially at the top, - so best to put sky over the spindly branches, and clone in the tree in other places, - we werent there so we will never know!
The overall colour tone is a tad off, and its oversaturated, so Ive adjusted this in the mod, looked after the sky, and sharpened.
Take a look at the techniques, - you will learn lots,
Hope this helps,

Hello, Dorian, and welcome to the world of photo editing. It's good to see you having a go. I have to say that my first efforts looked very much like this because I just painted a suitable blue into the area, which is what I think you have done. Go out and take pictures of just sky, all types......cloudy, moody or atmospheric in some way, but not just plain blue. You can then build up a file of skies that you can use to replace others. Replacing a sky is far simpler than you would think. To put it in very simplistic terms, you put the sky and your chosen picture together and use the eraser tool. If you put the picture on top of the sky, you only have to erase the original sky and the new sky will emerge. Then merge/flatten layers. As Willie suggests, look at some techniques, or google for "Replacing Skies (or the like) in Photoshop". I use PaintshopPro so can't give you a step-by-step guide. Have fun.
