Step 30

It's time to take care of model. Make a new layer under model one and create shadow for her as done with the symbol, but with 90% opacity and apply Gassian Blur with 7 px:
angel30
I used layer mask to reduce opacity at the bottom of this shadow:
angel30a
I named this layer "shadow 1".

Step 31

I used a new layer with soft black brush and opacity about 30%-50% to create more shadow under the model:

Step 32

To fix some details on model body I used a new layer with Clipping Mask and Clone Tool:

Step 33

To remove wound on model nose I used brush with color #8e5b52 (model skin tone) to paint there (on a new layer of course):

Step 34

To make model skin look smoother, I created a new layer and took soft brush with color #bf7f6f,, opacity and flow about 30% to paint on the face, especially cheeks, forehead, eyelids:

Don't overdo it as you can loose the details.

Step 35

Make a new layer with Clipping Mask, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill with 50% gray:

Take Dodge and Burn with Midtones Range, Exposure about 15-20% to enhance some details of model face and hair. You can see how I applied this tool with Normal mode and result with Overlay mode:

Step 36

The model looks too bright compared with background. To darken her I used a Curves layer:

On Curves layer mask I reduced the dark effect on the model legs:

Step 37

I used some layers to change the focus, light and contrast. Make a new layer on the top, active Gradient Tool (G), choose Radial Gradient with default colors (black and white). Drag a line from top right to bottom left to define the light source:

Change the mode to Soft Light 100%:

Add layer mask to this one. Use brush to reduce the dark at the left of the desert:

Step 38

Add a Levels layer to increase the light:

On Levels layer mask I erased the model hip as I don't want it too bright:

Step 39

In this step we'll be adding some red color to the model. Double click model layer, choose Blending Options:

We have result:

Step 40

It's time to add some sparks to the pic. Create a new layer on the top and change brush color to #cb3c15 and size of 8 px. Press F5 to make settings for this brush:

Spot around the model and on background:

Apply Gassian Blur with 1 px:

Double click this layer, choose Outer Glow effect:

Step 41

Change the mode of this layer to Color Dodge 100%:
angel41
To make the effect look better, on this layer, press Cmd/Ctrl+G to make group for it. Change the mode of this group to Color Dodge 100% and name it "sparks 1". You can see that it is enhanced:
angel41a

Step 42

I made a new layer within this group, used same brush and lower the size to 4-6 px to add more smaller sparks. Apply Outer glow effect with same settings with previous layer and use layer mask to remove any unwanted spark dots
angel42
Duplicate this layer and rotate it to place some spark dots on the ground:
angel42a

Step 43

Make more sparks on the foreground with brush 10 px. I applied Outer Glow with same settings and Gassian Blur 3 px:
