Duplicate the ivy, resize it a little bit and place it behind the original ivy.
Group those ivy layers into a group and apply this Brightness/Contrast :
Done with the left!
Step 30Now we just need to make one more ivy set at the right, duplicate the Ivy group we just created and place them to the right. Ctrl + T to open Transform Tool and choose Flip Horizontal so the ivies doesn't look similar to the left one.
Step 31We are almost done! Add some more fog to increase the mystic atmosphere for our piece.
Layer mask to the fog.
Here is the result.
Step 32Now one the Ray Light brush, piece a brush you like and place it near the moon. Low down the Opacity if you feel the light is too much.
Step 33Now to the final color tune-up. This following chain of adjustment layer will do its magic! Hue/Saturation -> Exposure -> Brightness/Contrast -> Curves -> Selective Color
The result :
Step 34Add some extra light to the model with a White soft brush.
Change the Blend Mode to Soft Light. Also grab a soft brush with Black and paint around the edge.
Reduce the Opacity down to 60%.
Step 35One last touch! A great way to bring up our main character is to make the background less attractive. Add this 1.2px Gaussian Blur to our Forest layer (remember to turn it to Smart Object!)
