Step 21Apply a Curves Adjustment (Image > Adjustments > Curves) to the noise layer with the settings shown below. You should have some white little points on a black layer resembling debris or snow.
Step 22Change the blending mode of the noise layer to Screen and lower the opacity to 61. The black color will disappear leaving only the white debris showing. Add a layer mask to this layer and hide the upper part (the part just above the underwater section) with the Gradient Tool.
Step 23Download the “Bubbles Brush” and double click on the .abr file to import the brushes. Choose one bubbles brush and on a new layer paint some bubbles in the underwater section. Use a layer mask to hide unwanted bubbles.
Step 24We will have a guy standing in the water but before that let’s add some column on which he will stand. Open the file “Columns” and copy/paste them in our scene. Resize and position the columns as shown below and lower the opacity of the columns layer to 32%.
Step 25Add a layer mask to the column layer and with the standard chalk brush (paint with black in the layer mask to conceal) hide extra columns leaving only the center one visible.
Step 26Create a Levels Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the columns layer. This step will darken the column.
Step 27Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Overlay. Clip this layer to the columns layer. Choose the standard round soft brush and paint with white (at 20% opacity) and black to add highlights and shadows until you achieve a result like shown below. Create another layer set to Overlay and paint highlights and shadows if one isn’t enough or if you want to refine your work.
Step 28Now let’s add the umbrella guy in our scene. Open the file “Guy with umbrella” and copy/paste the man with the umbrella in our scene. Use the Free Transform tool to position him as shown below.
Step 29Make a selection of the umbrella with Rectangular Marquee Tool as shown below and create a copy of the selection by pressing Ctrl + J. You now have the cut umbrella on a new layer.
Step 30Resize the duplicated umbrella with Ctrl + T and place it as shown below – it will be barely visible because it is over the original umbrella but you should see it.
Step 31Go back to our guy layer and add a layer mask. Use the chalk brush to hide the big umbrella (paint with black over it). Now only the duplicated small umbrella layer is visible.
Step 32Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select the umbrella stick (you should have the guy with the umbrella layer active – click on it to make it active – and not the small umbrella layer).
Now press Ctrl + J to make a duplicate of the umbrella stick selection you created at the previous step. Move this duplicated umbrella stick with the Move Tool (V) until it connects with the small umbrella above. Group the duplicated stick and the duplicated umbrella layers under a new group (hold Ctrl and click on each layer – press Ctrl + G to group) and name this group “Umbrella”. We’ll come back to this group later in the tutorial.
