Try to position the circle so that the girl was in its center. I did not like much the dark areas of the circle, so I cleaned them, using Eraser Tool (E).
Create a new layer. Use two brushes in the form of cubes and draw a small explosion of them. On the Brush Presets (where we exposed Angle) you can flip the brush horizontally and vertically. Use it in different ways to create one brush diverse. I used a Eyedropper Tool (I) to orange color was the same as the color of the sky. To quickly switch between colors, click “X” on keyboard. To make the default color (Black & White) use “D”. Place the cubes in different places and with different color (you can add a little near model’s sneakers) so it will be much more interesting.
Create a new layer. Now I have drawn from brushes of small circle (I used almost all of brushes once). After I drew it, I used Skew Tool (Edit > Transform > Skew) and correct perspective of circle.
Once the circle is ready, I Duplicate it (Cmd /Ctrl+ J) twice, changing their size and is located under sneaker of model.
Create a new layer, above the adjustment layer “Black & White”. Use a soft brush (Opacity: 50%, Hardness: 0%, Color: White), apply this layer to the layer with the model (hold Option/Alt and click on it). Draw on the hand model a little reflection.
We ended up with a drawing and start adding digital noise. Again, create a new layer and fill it black color (D, then X then Cmd/Ctrl + Del). Convert layer for Smart Filters (Filter > Convert for Smart Filters). Add first filter “Fibers” (Filter > Render > Fibers…) and second “Add Noise” (Filter > Noise > Add Noise…).
Now we turn to settings for this layer. Set a blending mode “Overlay” and Opacity: 65%. Add a layer mask and invert it (Cmd/Ctrl + I).
Use a soft brush (Size: 125px, Opacity: 60%, Hardness: 0%) and draw (on a layer mask) a noise, where you like. I drew it under the sneaker of model and a bit on the circle.
That’s it! The picture is completely ready! One note, if you want to color version of the city, then turn off the adjustment layer “Black & White” above the city group.
