At color -5, all you see is grey skies; color +15, you will see (as you do on every other setting) an actual blue sky.
Personally, I would stick with D-Nice's settings.
At +15 the color is probably off. meaning, The sky's may look more blue, but in actuality you are adding artificial color.
When I used the color calibration test pattern on the Digital video essentials BDROM with the color endoers included with the disk, D-Nice's settings were pretty much right on.
Some sets may vary a litttle by an increment or two in the +/- but I would doubt that +15 could be anywhere near accurate. But it still may look really good.
Adding that extra color may make sky's look more blue, but in other scenes it may not be a positve effect.
I preferr getting the picture as close to standard as possible. Some scenes may not "POP" out at you like it does with Dynamic or "torch" modes, but they are accurate and that is how the scene was intended to be.
But really, in the end what matters is that YOU like it. If it looks better to you and thats the way you like it then there is nothing wrong with that.
whatever makes you enjoy the set more is what matters.
