When we finished all this, now merge all layers to one. Create a new layer above all and hold CTRL/CMD + SHIFT + ALT + E. Now we have a final layer, right click on mouse and select Convert to Smart Object. Then go to Filter > Camera RAW Filter. At its most basic, the Photoshop Camera Raw filter allows you to use the functions of the ACR interface at any time within Photoshop. This allows you to make any adjustments within ACR at any time during your workflow instead of just limiting its usage to the raw processing stage.While it would be possible to import your working file into Lightroom to make the same sets of adjustments, doing this in Photoshop saves you from that cumbersome step. It allows you the use of these tools without any extra effort.

Step 43

Now in Camera Raw Filter, set the Value: Basic
  • Temperature: -10
  • Tint: +5
  • Exposure: -0.90
  • Highlights: -27

  • Size: 25
  • Roughness: 50

Step 46

Gradulated Filter
  • Exposure: -0.40
  • Highlights: -50
  • Whites: -44
Layer Opacity reduce to 90%.

Step 47

Step 48

Add Adjustment Layer "Color Lookup" and 3DLUT File select "NightFromDay.CUBE". Opacity set to 7%.

Step 49

Finaly Adjustment Layer is Brightness/Contrast, but before we set the value go to Image > Apply image... > OK Apply Image can be used on a layer or layer mask, allowing you to control the visibility of a layer.A completely white layer mask will make the layer completely visible, and a black layer mask will make the layer invisible.When applying an image onto a layer mask, the lighter parts of the image will be visible and the darker parts will be invisible.You can use this method to make a layer only visible in the Highlights or shadows of an image, giving you more control over blending.
