Good source of HDRis?

Can anyone recommend a good source for hi-res HDRi skies. Ideally free but I am willing to pay. I've had a look at the links to some of the HDIs on this forum but a lot of them are not that good low-res images. If anyone is using some commercial images that they would recommend then that would be brilliant as long as they are not too much money. I am only a hobbyist and don't have hundreds to spend on HDRis.

Cheers

Yeap, I bought several a year or so back from Peter Guthrie, http://www.peterguthrie.net/ they are great quality, they shed great light with nice shadows for an HDRI, they are not too expensive either. Here you can buy them http://3docean.net/user/paguthrie/portfolio?ref=paguthrie&ref=paguthrie&clickthrough_id=45425195&redirect_back=true. I've created lower res versions of each one for most uses and depending on the scene I even use the hi-res one if my vram allows it.
Check them out, imho they are pretty great.

And these will work straight into Octane as environments? i.e. I don't have to apply them to planes etc.

yeap they work fine just out of the box, the only thing is that they are huge, that's why I had to do some lower res ones
