Blend mode change to Overlay

Step 40

Now Duplicate group Ctrl/Cmd + J and position the image with the transform tool (Ctrl / Cmd + T) like image below.

Step 41

Select the top layer and hold CTRL/CMD + SHIFT + ALT + E. Now we have a final layer, right click on mouse and select Convert to Smart Object. Then go to Filter > Camera RAW Filter. At its most basic, the Photoshop Camera Raw filter allows you to use the functions of the ACR interface at any time within Photoshop. This allows you to make any adjustments within ACR at any time during your workflow instead of just limiting its usage to the raw processing stage.While it would be possible to import your working file into Lightroom to make the same sets of adjustments, doing this in Photoshop saves you from that cumbersome step. It allows you the use of these tools without any extra effort.

Step 42

Now in Camera Raw Filter, set the Value: Basic
  • Temperature: +2
  • Exposure: -0.15
  • Contrast: +12
  • Highlights: -5
  • Shadows: +8
  • Blacks: +6
  • Texture: +7
  • Clarity: +4
  • Vibrance: +8
Detail
  • Sharpening: 66
HSL Adjustments Hue
  • Reds: +9
  • Oranges: +47
  • Yellows: +9
  • Greens: -4
Saturation
  • Reds: -3
  • Oranges: -27
  • Greens: +7
Luminance
  • Oranges: -42
Radial Filter
  • Exposure: +0.40
  • Highlights: +9
Gradulated Filter
  • Exposure: -0.20
  • Highlights: -49
And finally, everything should look like this.
