How to Create a Surreal Photo Manipulation of a Man with Head of Lamp

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a surreal scene featuring a man with the head of a lamp watching flying birds.  First, we'll build the base scene using images of a sky, mountains, and arch rock. After that, we'll add the man, lamp, and tree and blend them together using adjustment layers, masking, and brushes. Later, we'll import the birds and paint the light effect. We'll use several adjustment layers to enhance the final result.
