Rename this layer now to "ground". Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + T) and resize it as shown on the image below:

The result of that should be similar to this:

Now, we will need to blend the ground with the light from the sky. To do that, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and type "lighten" on the name box. Next, right click on the newly created layer and click on "Create Clipping Mask" so that the paint we will be applying will only be applied to the "lighten" layer.

Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: ffffff

Now, let's paint:

Next, we will add more light to the horizon to make it look more dramatic. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and input "horizon fix 1" on the name box. Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 500px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: fffdc5

Now, let's paint:

The result of that should be like this:

Next, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name this layer "horizon fix 2". Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 1000px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: fffff3

Now, let's start enhancing the horizon for the second time:

Next, let's darken the "ground" to make the light look more dramatic. Create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name this layer to "darken ground". Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 600px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Now, let's paint:

The result of that should be similar to this:

When you're done, select all the layers that we've created and press Ctrl/Cmd + G to group them. Once grouped, rename it to "Background".

Step 4: Create the Mysterious Box

Now, we will be creating the eerie floating box. To start, let's open "Basic white cube 1" by svilen001. We would need to take the box out from this stock image and to do that, we would need the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L).

Once this tool is activated, create a selection area around the box:
image045
Next, activate the Move tool (V) and drag this box to our canvas. Rename this layer to "box". Make sure to put this above the "Background" group.

Position it as show below:

Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the box as shown on the images below:

The result:

Step 5: Create the Texture for the Mysterious Box

In this step, we will make the floating box look more realistic. The step above will now serve as our guide in transforming the textures that we would be applying to the box. To start, open the texture "Concrete Wall 3" by mdpratt. Now, we won't be using the whole texture, instead we will be cutting parts of the texture and applying it on each sides of the box. Activate the Rectangular Marquee tool (M) and create a selection area around the region shown on the image below:

Once you've done that, activate the Move tool (V) and drag it to our canvas. Move it and position it as shown below:
