Result should be in hard light blending at about 70% opacity.


And ………create again a new layer above the previous layer (don’t worry it is the final new layer ;-) Set this layer to linear light blending. With the same color paint soft highlight on the tombs. Don’t forget to add some shadow for the candles. Use soft black color for this purpose. Here is the result.

Make sure we are active on the topmost layer in the layer panel. Hit Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E to merge all visible layers into a single layer. Go to layer > smart objects > convert to smart object.

Result after masking :

Here is the result should be:
