To do that add new layer on the top of all layers and name it GRAIN. Grab the Gradient Tool, select #808080 grey color and fill the layer with it. No go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise... and set the value Amount on 3%. Select Gaussian Distribution instead of Uniform and press OK.
To blend the layer with the rest of the image properly change the Blending Mode on Overlay.

Step 35 - Final Touch

You're almost finished the tutorial. There is one thing left which doesn't look well. According to me the mountain under the sun are too bright. To fix it add a new layer on the top of all layers and name it DARKER MOUNTAIN. Grab the Brush Tool (B). Pick some dark rose color from the sky and paint over the mountain. Then change the Blending Mode on Soft Light. Below you can see how the mountain look without this layer, with the layer on Normal and on Soft Light Blending Mode.
