Create a Frozen Scene Inspired by "The Day After Tomorrow"


Open the iceberg photography again, place it in the upper right corner and erase the parts that we don't need. Use Curves and Hue/Saturation with the presets made for the photo used above.


Step 10

In this step we will adjust the sky, because it looks too cloudy and we need a more calm sky to fit our work, so create a new layer and with the clone stamp tool (opacity 30%-40%) clone some parts of the sky that are lighter. I use the brush tool also, with smooth edges to fix some parts.


Step 11

Adjustment Layers-Color Balance. Use the settings below.


Step 12

Now we will continue to create the piece of ice in the background. Open the second picture of the ice and place it like I did, so it will fit the other part. Now we need to make the right color adjustments so it will blend in. Make the presets like you see in the images below. All these layers need to be clipped to the ice's layer. When you have the right tones, add a mask to the first layer leave only the small ice.


Adjustment Layers-Curves.


Adjustment Layers-Hue/Saturation.


Adjustment Layers-Levels.


Use the image below as a reference for how this should look like.


Step 13

This is the last part of the iceberg. So open the picture and place it at the end of the big chunk of ice. Use Curves to add some light to this picture. Erase the pictures background as you did for the other two before.


Step 14

Now let's put some snow in the picture, so open the first photography. Place it in lower right corner.


Use some Adjustment Layers, to fix the color differences, such as Color Balance, Curves, Hue/Saturation. Use the presets from the images below. Erase the edges so it will blend in.


Step 15

We will use a lot of snow pictures, because we will take only a small part from each. Open the next snow picture. Place it on top of the other one. Adjust the colors as we did for the other snow picture. You can find the presets in the images below. Next erase the edges.


Step 16

Cut out the statue (I used the pen tool). Place it on top of all the other layers. Add a mask and cover the lower part so it will look like the statue is sinking in the frozen water. Use the ice line to place the statue, see how it's matching the statue.
