I have a panorama created from three separate images. As a result of perspective, there's an area that I need to fill seamlessly to match existing deep blue sky:

I've tried content-aware fill but it doesn't really have enough to work with and pulls in pixel data from the building as well as blue sky. I also tried using a gradient fill but there's enough variation horizontally at the sky edge that I can't get a good match.

Can anyone suggest how to fill the empty area so it matches the adjoining sky seamlessly?

I'm guessing from your taks you are using Photoshop CS5. Doesn't photoshop CS5 have the nifty content aware deletion tool that works wonder with such things? Here's a tutorial on using it.

    Interesting.... I did things slightly differently and got awful results, but using the technique in the tutorial link gave me perfect results. Thanks! Dec 19, 2010 at 1:16

It's not perfect but what I did was select a single line of pixels for the sky and stretched it to the frame boundaries. Then I simply brushed with the spot healing brush a couple of times to hide the compression artifacts.
