After that duplicate the layer three times. To duplicate it right click on in and simply select the option Duplicate layer.

Step 11 - Mist

To create bit more enigmatic atmosphere you'll add mist above the river in this step.

Download the mist brushes. I used the ones listed in the beginning of the tutorial but feel free to use any other which are free. Install the brushes into Photoshop.

Add new layer on the top of all layers and name it MIST. Grab the Brush Tool (B), select some of the brushes you've just installed, set the Opacity on 100% and pick some light grey color from the sky.

Avoid using pure white color because it's usually too harsh and doesn't look well in pictures. Try to use some softer alternatives such as light grey, light yellow etc. It's the same case with black.

Below you can get the inspiration where to paint fog.

Step 12 - Adding Rock and Woman

Background is almost done, let's focus on the foreground. This will be very quick step. Download the picture of stone and drag it into your photo manipulation. Place the layer on the top of all layers and name it ROCK.

Do the same with the picture of a woman. Place it on the top and name it, surprisingly, WOMAN.

Step 13 - Adding Hair

Because of all the wind woman's hair should be flying. You'll do it in this step. Download the hair brushes listed in the beginning of the tutorial and install them into Photoshop.

Create new layer on the top of all layers and name it HAIR. Grab the Brush Tool (B) and select some of the hair brushes you've just installed. Press Alt on your keyboard to activate the Eyedropper Tool (I) and select some very dark brown color from woman's hair. Paint hair similarly as on the following picture.

As you can see the painted parts are bit darker than the original hair. It's intentional because the overall hair should be bit more darker to look better.
