    Default Any website to recommend for high resolution pictures for skies?

    Hi all,

    Any website to recommend for high resolution pictures for skies? I need some nice pictures for skies to replace a dull sky in my photos. I have tried to google for pictures. However when the picutres are saved and imported into photoshop for processing, the resolution of the photos are not good. Big squares can be seen when the pictures are dragged to image size. Thanks alot for the help.

    how high you want?
    is US$50.00 ok with you?
    that is about the price you need to pay, you can look for stock images and download it.

    else you can slowly wait for a sunny day.

    Why go to stock images when u have so many photogs here. Post in buy and sell and ask for members to send you the low Rez images. If you like something pay them and get the full Rez images

    True but sometimes some hobbyist members may have some nice sky shots sitting with them and this could be a good incentive to help them get new gear or just get out more often and click more " just sayin" my hands broken so I can't take any pictures for a month. So just taking it out. From the original posters comment I got a slight hint that a photoshop specialist could also assist some one with re-touching skills

    Hi thanks all for the comments. The photo available at photostock is very ex. Not worth paying so much. My intention is to shoot my own skies. But while waiting to go shooting, i am eager to learn and replace dull skies in photoshop. So wanted to find out if i can get any pictures from some website. From the advices given, i will prefer to shoot myself instead of paying. Thanks all
