Step 61

Now we add the magic stone and crow. Let's start with the stone. Go to File > Place and select the image of the stone.

Step 62

Select Quick Selection Tool (W) in toolbar and select the stone. Be careful when you select lion and some items may not be highlight.
Then click on the icon mask to remove the background and leave only a stone.

Step 63

Now reduce its size. Go to Edit > Transform > Scale or the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ T. After flip horizontal this fragment. Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal or click RMB on a stone and in the list that appears, select Flip Horizontal. I also tilted stone to match the slope of the cliff
Now place the stone as shown in the figure.

Step 64

Now time for the bird. Go to File > Place and select the image of the bird.

Step 65

Select Quick Selection Tool (W) in toolbar and select the raven. When you select and grab green background around the wings crow. Then it can be removed and leave feathers.
After selection you need to adjust selection was not white outline around the model. Go to Refine Edge…

Step 66

Change the blending mode to Overlay.
Click on the brush icon in the window and paint it in places where there is a green background. You will see that this place has become red. I have it highlighted in blue for example. This removes the background, but puts wings crow.
Now set the settings for this window as shown in the figure. Apply the settings press Ok.

Step 67

Then click on the icon mask to remove the background.
Reduce crow. Go to Edit > Transform > Scale or the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ T.  Then place it as shown in the figure.

Step 68

Now you need to route the light and shadow. Create a new layer use the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ Shift+ N and set the settings as shown in the figure.

Step 69

Using the Dodge Tool (O) and Burn Tool (O) Draw light and shadow. Try to make the contrast of the image.
Note the model. You need to change the lighting of her dress she seemed realistic. Change the size of tools depending on what you are doing. Settings for both instruments shown in Figure
So I made ​​the light and shadow.

Step 70

Now let us work on the effects of light and do more even mountains near the water. Continue to start a little ledge to make similarity harbor. Create a new layer in a group “Land”.
Select Clone Stamp Tool (S) in toolbar and select in image mountains green part, holding Alt.

Step 71

Go the created layer and start painting the mountains continued. Draw a stiff brush because the landscape has the precise form cannot be blurred.

Step 72

Now duplicate the adjustment layer from the mountains (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ J), which we cloned and place it above the layer with the bay.
Do not worry if you change a little picture in color. Just when you put all the layers on the right places, you check that the adjustment layers applied only to the necessary layers, rather than the entire document. To apply an adjustment layer to the desired layer hold Alt and click on layer.

Step 73

Create a new layer and do all the same, but now with the water. Nothing complicated just a little neatly. Layer must be above the water layer in the bay.

    1. Hi! I understand, but on the right side of the resource page is a great button "Download". Click on it and save the file to your computer. Then use program to unzip photos (for example WinRAR) in the corect folder. Then locate the file of the photo with the name "IMG_0328" and place it in your work. That's it! You can continue worked. Just the author made ​​a presentation that be in his archive. This is an advertisement :) I checked that the archive is desired photo and he downloaded from the site. I hope I helped you.
