Taken on a local lake one morning recently. Blended several images and added the sky in post processing.
Thanks for looking.

To a layer with the sky and used a luminosity mask on that layer to mask the trees and the lake. I had some haloing around the branches and got lucky with feathering the mask in the layer mask properties box (The circle with the letter i in it ) to correct that. It does not always work. The secret it to make a layer mask that matches the tree branch size accurately. Sometimes blend if works also. Just do a search for replacing skies on the web and you will find several good tutorials. I hope this helps.
