Go to Edit > Stroke and pick white color:
Add a layer mask and use a black brush to break the circle and blur its opacity as shown below:
Duplicate this circle twice, resize them and arrange them inside the first circle. I lowered the middle circle opacity to 50%. Mask them off with the same rule:
Active the Line Tool (U) with the settings below:
Draw many lines around the planets and above the mountains top, arrange them as you like to get an abstract feel (remember to make them on the separate layers). Here is mine:
Add a mask to several layers and reduce the opacity of the lines, especially at their two sides to avoid a rigid look
Draw six lines above the model arms and arrange them to get a look of her holding these lines. I lowered the opacity of some lines to 30, 50 and 70%:
Create a new layer on the top. Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to draw a circle:
Active the Gradient Tool with Radial Gradient, the colors #834115 and #f8b2f2. Drag a line from the bottom left to the top right:
Convert this layer to a Smart Object and scale it down:
Duplicate this layer several times and arrange the spheres on the top of the lines on the mountains, in the sky, beside the planets and above the desert. I applied Gaussian Blur with 8 px to the sphere nearest the foreground and to another 4px to add some depth to the scene:
For the one beside the two planets, I used Channel Mixer to change its color:
Make a group for all the spheres and change the group mode to Normal 100%. Use Hue/Saturation to desature some of them:
On this layer mask use a soft black brush to reduce this adjustment layer effect, especially the ones above the lines and in the sky:
I used Color Balance for these spheres to add some blue to them:
On this layer mask use a soft black brush to clear the effect on the ones on the desert:
I used Curves to brighten some spheres:
On this layer mask use a soft black brush to erase the ones on the desert and in the sky as they're in the dark side of the scene:
Make a new layer on the top. Use a soft brush with the color #d65f35 and #fbbd59 to spot on the picture as shown below:

I am a student working on Photoshop and i was wondering about how you can get the smart filter?
Hi there, go to the drop down menu that is above with the rest of the filters, and search there. If you are on mac you can always go to the help tool, and type in what you are looking for, and the system will pop up what you have typed in, showing you in the menu. Hope this helps!
