Now we are going to work on the cracks. Select the Original layer then select the Lasso tool (L). Draw a figure on the wall in the shape of a hole in a wall. Press Ctrl+J to create a duplicate of that selection on a new layer. Then, right click on the new layer and choose Layer Style. Enable the Bevel and Emboss style then adjust the settings to create a bevel effect like shown below.w

Step 9 – Creating the smoke

Duplicate the clouds layer then name this new layer “Smoke”. Use the Free Transform tool (Ctrl+T or Edit > Transform) to rotate the layer then erase around the smoke so that it looks like smoke is coming out of the windows. Put the Smoke layer above the Fire layer(s). Use the Smudge tool to blur the edge of the smoke for a windy effect.

Step 10 – Lamppost

Select the layer Original then use the Lasso tool to create a selection of the lamp post. Press Ctrl+J to duplicate this selected area into its own layer. Rotate it using the Free Transform tool (Ctrl+T or Edit > Free Transform). Rotate and position the lamp post like shown in the screenshot below. Once you’re done, use the Clone Stamp tool to erase parts of the bottom of the lamp post so that it looks broken.

Position this lamp post layer above the layer Original. Use the Eraser tool (E) to delete the area so that it looks like it is behind the metal statue.

Step 11 – Plane Wreckage

On my holiday to Norway, I was hiking and found some plane wreckage. I took some photos of it and now I’ll be using it as part of this photo manipulation. Isolate the plane wreckage then paste it in our photo manipulation project.

I named this layer Propeller then I positioned this layer above the layer Original. Desaturate the layer (Ctrl+Shift+U or Image > Adjustments > Desaturate)

Repeat this process with other plane wreck parts. Sometimes you’ll need to use the Distort tool (Edit > Transform > Distort) to distort the object for the proper perspective.

II repeated this process with a picture of an airplane engine.

Not all the photographs where in the correct perspective so i needed to 'distort' some parts.
