Step 9

Select all the knight and debris layers and press Cmd/Ctrl+G to make a group for them. Change this layer mode from Pass Through (default group mode) to Normal 100%. On the top of the layers within this group, make a Curves adjustment layer to darken the knight and the disintegration effect:

On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to refine the light and shade on the knight to fit the background. You can see the results on the layer mask and on the picture:

Step 18

To change the light and contrast of the image, make a new layer on the top. Active the Gradient Tool (G) and choose Radial Gradient with default colors (black and white). Drag a line from the top left to the bottom right of the canvas and change this layer mode to Soft Light 100%. Add a mask to this layer and use a soft black brush to erase the right of the fire area as I don't want it to be affected by this Gradient layer.
