Add a Gradient Map like the one showed in the image below. (Above all layers). Then set it to Soft Light with Opacity and Fill at 80%.

step-020
step-021

Step 17

Add another Gradient Map like the one showed below. Then set it to Soft Light with Opacity at 80% and Fill at 90%.

step-022
step-023

Step 18

Let's keep on working on our background scene. Time to enhance lights and shadows. Create a new layer above all layers and name it 'Light Railway'. Pick the color #69b987. With a soft brush paint some light on the railway.

step-024

Step 19

Set the layer to Color Dodge with Opacity and Fill at 35%.

step-025

Step 20

Create a new layer and name it 'General Light'. Pick the color #f2f1b9. Paint some light around with a soft brush.

step-026

Step 31

Set this layer to Hard Light with Opacity and Fill at 50%.

step-027

Step 32

Create a new layer and name it 'Shadows'. Set it to Multiply with Opacity and Fill at 40%. Pick the color #232211. With a soft brush you have to paint some shadows. Below you can see where I painted (with the layer set to Normal at 100%). And then the result with the layer set to Multiply.

step-028
step-029

Step 33

Since the shadows are too harsh I applied some blur. Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set 10px.

step-030

Step 34

We are going to do the same with the lights. Create a new layer and name it 'Lights'. Set it to Soft Light with Opacity at 30% and Fill at 70%. Pick the color #e3da9b and paint some lights with a soft brush. Below you can see where I painted (with the layer set to Normal at 100%). And then the result with the layer set to Soft Light.

step-031
step-032

Step 35

The creation of the background is ended. Now it's time to add our subject. Go to File > Place and open the 'Model' stock. Name the layer 'Model'.

step-033

Step 36

Now we have to extract the lady from the background. I will use the Pen Tool. Grab the Pen Tool and place the points around the lady's edges.

step-034

Step 37

Once the points are in place right click on the image and choose 'Make selection'.

step-035

Step 38

When you click 'Make Selection' a window will pop up. In Radius Feather put 2 (px). Now you have the model selected.

step-036

Step 39

Just click on the Layer Mask button and you'll have your model extracted with a Layer Mask.

step-037

Step 40

As you can see there are some parts that have to be cut off. You can do it as we did before. With the Pen Tool make a selection of the area you want to delete.

step-038

Step 41

Now select the Model Layer Mask and paint with black in the selected area. The unwanted part will disappear.

step-039
step-040

Step 42

Repeat this step until you have deleted all the unwanted parts.

step-041

Step 43

Now that the model is extracted we have to make some adjustments to blend her in the scene. Before doing this I will remove the bracelets. I will use he Clone Stamp Tool.

We want to be safe so we will clone in a new layer.  Create a new layer and clip it to the Model layer. Grab Clone Stamp Tool and be sure that in the settings you have Sample: Current & Below (1). Now hold down the Alt key click on the point you wish to use as a sampling point (2).  The cursor will change to a target. This area will be used as the reference point for cloning. Click and draw where you want the cloned image to appear.

    1. This is an awesome tutorial that is VERY easy to follow. IF, which I very very much doubt create a tutorial yourself! Just because you have barely progressed beyond your Janet & John reading books, don't expect people to create tutorials to be written at your level of intelligence and reading standard!
