Lately, I've been messing about with On1 RAW.
I came across a Sky replacement course so decided to have a go with some of my earlier images.
First of all I replaced the sky using Layers and On1's Adjustment brush set to Perfect Brush.
It made quite a good job but left a thin black line along the sky and original image.
On1 has a Chisel Tool which can get rid of this manually but by double clicking the Chisel Tool icon this is applied automatically.
I chose a sky with clouds that were lit from behind me as this was where the sun was (something I didn't take into consideration in an earlier post ;) )
So, with the new sky in place, the next thing I did was alter the colour temperature to match the sky.
The last thing I did was to select the new sky layer, duplicated that layer and flipped it over and placed it over the river so as to create a reflection of the sky in the water.

Some purists will say its cheating but to me its the final image that counts.
Had I not got chatting to some fellow photographers in the nearby hotel, this was how the sunset actually was, but after a few choice Malts we completely missed it!! :D

ok i get the sky replacement but flipping it so it appears as a reflection in the water without losing the rocks blows my mind!

Reduce the opacity and paint in over the water ;)
By painting in using the Perfect Brush, only the colour of the water will be affected leaving the rocks as they were.
