When you're done, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the selected part of "Sky III" to our canvas. On the layer window, position this layer under the "sea" layer so that the "sea" layer would appear in front. Once done, rename the layer to "sky". See the image below:

After that, we're going to transform it once more, and again, for composition's sake. This time, we're going to resize the sky for the viewer to see bluest part of the sky and to make our image appear more minimal.

To start, click on the "sky" layer and then activate the Transform tool (Ctrl + T). See more steps on the images below:

Now, we're going to create the light on the horizon. To start, let's create a new layer by pressing Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N on your keyboard. When the New Layer box opens, type: "Light 1" as its name. Next, position this layer between the "Sea" and "sky" layer. Once you've done that, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following settings:

  • Brush size: 500px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: fff9c7

To input those settings, first press B on your keyboard to activate the Brush tool (B) and input all the settings mentioned above on their respective places on the Options window (Shown below). See image below:
