Create a Curves adjustment layer to darken the leaves. On this layer mask, paint on the side of the leaves which are exposed in the light. 

Make another Curves adjustment layer to increase the light on the bright sides of the leaves. Paint on the rest so they won't be or less affected by this adjustment layer. 

Step 43

Create a new layer below the leaves' group and use a soft brush with the color #0f0d0d to paint shadow for the leaves on and falling to the ground.

Make a Gradient Map adjustment layer on top of the layers and pick the colors #e10019 and #00601b. Lower the opacity of this layer to 10%.

Create a Color Fill layer and pick the color #400202 and later this layer mode to Exclusion 100%.

Step 45

Add a Color Balance adjustment layer and change the Midtones and Highlights settings:

Make a Color Lookup adjustment layer and select Soft_Warming.look. On this layer mask, paint on the bottom and the middle of the canvas to remove the effect there.

Step 46

Create a Curves adjustment layer to increase the light of the sun's area. On this layer mask, paint on the rest to keep their lightness and contrast.

Make a Levels adjustment layer and alter the Reds, Greens and Blues values. Lower the opacity of this layer to 70%.

Step 47

Add a Curves adjustment layer to darken the whole scene. Paint on the model's face to reveal the lightness there.

Make a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to increase the light around the sun. Paint on the rest so it won't be affected by this adjustment layer.

Use another Curves adjustment layer to darken the edges of the canvas. Paint around the sun's area to keep its lightness and make a nice contrast for the whole scene.

Step 48

Create a Selective Color adjustment layer and change the Reds and Yellows settings:

Make a Photo Filter adjustment layer and pick the color #00ecd9 to change the color of the sky a bit. Use a soft black to paint on the rest to keep the warm color of these places.
