Step 102

Rotate it by -60 degrees.


Step 103

Place it above all layers. Change the blend mode to Screen.


Step 104

Now open up the planet stock image. Drag it into the main file. Press Ctrl + T. And enter the values in the Options bar. What we are trying to achieve is to use the glow of the planet and combine it with the model below.


Step 105

Adjust lighting using the Curves command.


Step 106

Slightly reduce the saturation.


Step 107

And now hide all those hard edges of the image using Layer Mask.


Step 108

Change the blend mode to Screen.


Step 109

If still there are any hard edges just hide the using a soft round brush by painting inside the mask.


Step 110

Add a new Curves adjustment layer at the very top in the layers palette. Adjust the mid tone values slightly.


Step 111

And finally sharpen up the image. But we can't apply sharpness filter to all layers at once. We will use the Apply Image command to achieve this. First create a new layer above all layers in the layers palette. Go to Image > Apply Image. Make sure the "Merged" option is selected in the dialog box. Press OK. This creates merged copy of the composition in our new layer.


Step 112

Now we can apply unsharp mask filter to this layer. Go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Enter the value and press OK. And there is the final image.
