Default Does this sky look fake?

I didn't like the ski in the original of this photo, so I inserted a color layer in the sky portion.....but it looks a little fake to me. The original sky was overcast and white. Any opinions are welcome.

I agree with djb. The sky does not look correct.

There's nothing wrong in setting a purple sky , however, to have the fake working in a consistent way, you should also take care of windows reflections

Otherwise, jif u want to make it look real, just pick up the cyan color in one of the windows and fill bucket the sky part.
If u are using PhotoShop,just click on the foreground color box,the cursor will change and will let u pick any color you like in the original image.

Or, if u want to make it even more real, select a second cyan color as a background, letting it be darker or brighter than the first one.
Now select the sky part and apply a linear vertical gradient with the two colours.
And remember that the lighter part of the sky is at the bottom.

And, if u want to add clouds ...

To tell you the truth, if you had just posted the picture and not told us the sky was fake, I do not think anyone would have noticed! I think you did a good job with the color.
