Step 1 - BackgroundOpen the 'Background 1' image and let's crop the part we are interested in. Duplicate the image and set it to Multiply. Opacity 80%. Open the 'Background 2' image and put it above the other layers. Delete the part with the tree (as you see below). Set the layer to Soft Light. Opacity 50%. As you can see on top there is a part of the tree that is not well belended. Delete it with the Erase Tool or with a Layer Mask (I prefer this method because it doesn't destroy the image). This is what you will have. Create a new layer. Choose a big round soft brush with low Opacity and pick Black color. Paint a vignette like the one you see in the image below and add Gaussian Blur if you want. Set the layer to Multiply. Opacity and Fill to 80%.
bWe need to create a kind of ray of light. Create a new layer. You can paint it with a soft brush or use a light beams brush like this.I used this color: #ccdffb (The black background is only to make you see the light, you will not have to do it!) I left the layer with Normal Blend but I put the Opacity at 80%. Double click on this layer and a window will pop up. Check 'Outer Glow'. Put the color #ccdffb instead of the preset yellow.
