4) In this step we will be creating a glow to the fire ball. Using the Soft Round Brush paint the color #f4b906 as shown above the fire ball and set the Blending Mode of the layer to Screen and lower the Opacity of the layer to 20%.

Step 17

In this step we are going to create the lanterns floating in the air which represents the light of hope in this theme.
  1. Mask out the image of the Lanterns into a new layer using the Lasso Tool (L).
17
2) Now import the Lantern on to the working canvas and place it near the women as shown.
17-1
3) We need to de-saturate the colors of the lantern to blend with the environment. With the Lantern layer selected go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation and reduce the Saturation=-64, and Lightness=-5.

Step 18

In this step we are going to create the light in the Lantern. While painting the light we will be going from dark to lighter colors.
  1. Select a mask in the shape of the glass of the lantern and fill the color #da8c05.
18
2) Now paint with the lighter shade of yellow i.e. #e2c003.
18-1
3) The main source of light always appears brighter hence paint with white color in the center as shown to represent the light source in the lantern.
18-2
4) Now set the Blending Mode of the Light layer to Overlay to retain the texture of the lantern which make it look natural.
18-3
5) To create the light glows to the lantern paint the color #d5bb78 as shown. Then set the Blending Mode of the Glow Layer to Screen and reduce the Opacity to 23%.

Step 19

Similarly following the step18 create few more Lanterns in the scene.

Step 20

In this step we will be creating the reflection of the Lantern in the water. Since the mirror image has opposite prospective we need to follow different procedure rather than flipping the whole Lantern Vertically.
  1. Cut the front face of the Lantern into a new layer and flip it vertically and place it as shown.
20
2) Now cut the side face of the Lantern and flip it vertically and transform it to fit the prospective as shown using the Move Tool (V).
20-1
3) Since the lantern is floating by some height from the surface of water it’s base will be visible in the reflection. Hence paint a black base as shown.
20-2
4) Now by using the Liquify Filter create the water disturbance to the Lantern Reflection Layer.
20-3
5) Move the Lantern Reflection layer downwards to show the distance between Floating Lantern and the water surface. Then reduce the Opacity of the layer to 76%.
20-4
6) Similarly create reflection to the other lanterns in the BG.
20-5

Step 21

In this step we will be creating the fire light shade on the right hand of the women, to create a natural depth.
  1. Paint the yellow color on the right hand of the women as shown.
21
2) Now set the Blending Mode of the layer to Soft Light.
21-1


Step 22

In this step we are going to create the reflection of the house in the water. Here we are not going to use the Liquify Tools, because in the original landscape image the reflection in water near the shore was not heavily disturbed.
  1. Duplicate the image of the house and flip it vertically and move it downwards and place it as shown. Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
22
2) With the house layer selected add a Motion Blur with Distance 55px and angle 90 to get the natural as in the original landscape image.
