In reply to VicC, Jan 23, 2013

It should not matter if there is a background layer that is locked for (Paste into) will add a new layer on top of the locked background layer and the clipboard will be pasted into the new layer content then the layer is masked  with the active selection so only the sky area is displayed.  The layer Mask is also not linked to the layers content in case that the paste in pixels were not the correct size needed so you can use Ctr|Cmd+T to transform the layers pixels content to fit the masked area.
