Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the sky, part of Digital Painting in Photoshop: Day for Night.
Now that we have successfully removed the original sky from this image it's time to …add a new one. This is simply a matter of dragging a new …sky into the composition, so we'll do that now. …Here's the sky we want to use, a dark evening sky with a suggestion of cloud …and that will give the impression there might be stronger rain clouds over the …other side. So we can drag it into our composition. …To make it appear behind the buildings, all we have to do is drag the layer down.…
And let's use Free Transform to make this slightly bigger so we can be sure it goes …over the edges. Now we can position this sky where we want. …I'm going to lift it up slightly so we get some of that strong red evening feel …coming through, and round about there seems like a good place for our sky. …With the sky in place, let's give it a name, and let's give our building a name. …And while we're at it we can now delete this layer one, which is the color layer …we were using when we were erasing the sky earlier.…
