Create a new file. Open the sky photography and place it like I did in the image.
Cut out the tower and drag it on top of the sky photo.
Cut out half of the tower and place it a bit to the right as you see in the image below.
Go back to the first tower layer and transform it using the warp tool so all the pieces of the tower will look as one object. You can cut out more pieces of the first tower until it looks right.
If there still are some parts that don’t fit right you can erase them.
