Erase it a bit
And blur it with a Gaussian blur filter with pretty small radius.
I’ve changed the layer opacity to 50%. With the same technique you can add small round shines. Except long lines just place some dots and maybe use smaller radius in blur filter. As you can see I’ve made the opacity of shine even smaller. I’ve came up with something like this:
We have to connect our egg with a background. For this we will use some dark reflects in bottom part of egg. Pick hard, round brush, set the color to #e19103 and paint on egg as below:
It is useful to use clipping mask here. Now use eraser tool and soften the edges a bit with soft brush ending.
At last, go to Filter > Blur >> Gaussian blur and apply these settings:
When you are using filter try to focus on effect rather than on radius. After that change layer’s opacity to 40% and blending mode to Lighten.
Here we go with a strongest shadow. Select the egg’s base layer ([ctrl] + [click] on thumbnail) and move this selection a bit upward. For this step also you should use clipping mask for it will be a lot easier. Then fill selection (remember- everything on new layer) with black or at least very dark color. While you have some marque tool active- hit few times [up arrow] so you will again move the selection:
Then press [delete] button on your keyboard to delete everything within selection. Deselect then and erase parts of this layer on the very left and right.
Go to Gaussian blur filter
And finally change the layer’s blending mode to multiply, opacity to 60% and move it a little bit downward. I think we are done with egg. You can now play with layer’s opacity to fix your tones if you are not happy with the effect.
Now we will make some shadow underneath the egg so it will looks like floating in the air. We could just use elliptical marquee tool, but we will make it in a bit harder way. But this technique will be for sure useful for you in the future, so I will go thru this.
[Ctrl] + [click] on the egg’s layer so you will have a selection (just a little reminder- new layer). Now choose Select > Transform selection from the main menu. As you can see now you can freely transform your selection. You have automatically active Scale transformation. Now just resize your selection to something like this:
