Add Adjustment layer with Color balance. Of course create also clipping mask:
You should create lights on belltower. Add new adjustment layer with brightness/contrast and create clipping mask.
Add mask to this layer. Light source will guide you.
Place at new layer Unsual tree, as is shown:
Mask it as shown:
On this Unsual tree create Adjustment Layer. Choose Hue/saturation. After you set it, create clipping mask.
Add new layer and create clipping mask. Choose 100 px soft round brush #1e373b color. Draw gently shadows on the tree.
Change blending mode to Multiply and opacity to 80%.
Add new Adjustment layer - Color balance. Create clipping mask, and set it:
As you can see, tree is to bright in some places. You should fix it by masking :).
Then you should make lights on the tree. Add adjustment layer with color/balance and create clipping mask.
Mask it baby! :) Use soft, big brush.
Set blending mode to Screen, opacity to 67%.
Cool! Now add adjustment layer with brightness/contrast. Set it as shown below:
Create new layer. (Hey! Without making clipping mask :]) Choose spatter 59 px brush #baf3f0 color. Draw on the edges of trees.
Add new layer, choose 1 px soft brush, the same color. Draw contour of rocks, belltower and trees.
Step 57 - Second island - abstract
I used the same techniques on second island. You can just read again from 25 step, leave only one island, or do as many as you wish! :) But I'll remind you about this! Start from black base. Brown color is for depth of field.
On clipping mask, you should paste rocks, try to place another part of stock image! :)
Change saturation by adjustment layer with Hue/Saturation.
With soft brushes draw shadows (change blending mode to Multiply) and lights (leave blending mode - Normal).
Again draw shadows and lights with smaller brush.
Set brightness/contrast of second island (clipping mask)
Change color balance. (clipping mask)
With soft, big (300px) black brush on new layer (clipping mask) draw stroke on the top. It will be shadow of tree.
Paste Unsual tree.
Set color/balance of the tree. Create clipping mask.
