Hi,
this is my first sky swap edit, i used CS5 for it, basically i selected the sky with magic wand tool and then inverted my selection and pasted the selection over the new sky, all went well i think, but when we take a look at the edges of the building that touches the sky it clearly have a distinct cut line and sky and buildings just dont blend in as they should, this phenomenon is more visible when seen full size image,

how to tackle this situation?

You're using the wrong selection tool. Photoshop contains several selection tools ranging from the Magic Wand to Channels and Masks; the Magic Wand is the most basic of these tools. I'd suggest using the Quick Selection tool in conjunction with the Refine Edge command, or the Color Range command, or use a Channel to create a luminosity selection of the original sky.

Perhaps if you linked to the original unedited image someone will demonstrate how to make an accurate selection.
