The result should be similar to this one:

image268

Select the first layer in our layer stack and merge all the previous layers again by using the shortcut Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+Alt/Opt+E.

image269

With this new layer selected, go to Filter-> Render->Lens Flare.

image270

Change the mid point of the effect to the place highlighted below, and reduce the Brightness of it to around 50%.

image271

This is the result:

image272

With that same layer still selected, go to Filter->Render->Lighting Effects.

image273

Use the image below as reference and change the mid point of the effect, increase the width, and set the Intensity of it to 45. Leave the rest of the settings as default.

And this is our final result:

    It says I have to buy the field image from the website. Is there anyway I could get it without a purchase?

    When you are making custom brush, before you press define brush preset, do this – ( your shape will be automatically changed to grayscale mode when you’ll define it as brush preset) so go to black and white and adjust object cause you won’t have that opportunity after brush is created.

    Hi, nice tutorial, but… I have one question.
    How do you make the brush like you use in this tutorial?
    it is almost without shape, some kind of transparency. Perfect to work with, especially this type of pictures.

      Play with the opacity and brush shape. Make sure the hardness is at 0%. He is using a tablet I think, so unless you have a tablet also you will not be able to get the brushstrokes that perfect (at least, I couldn’t).

    Either the trees are too big or the humans are too small. Layers are messy too.
