For composition purposes, we would need to resize the sky a little to get rid of that little gray cloud on the upper left of our image. Activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and then resize the image as shown below:

With that done, let's now fix the background and make them look like one image. Let's proceed now to our next step.

Step 4: Fix the Background

So we're going to fix our background to make it one seamless photo-manipulation. To start, we will darken some parts of the ground. Create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name this layer: "darken 1". Put this layer below our "sky" layer by clicking on this layer and dragging it below the "sky" layer. See image below:

After that, let's ready the tools we need to paint. Activate the Brush tool (B) but before we start, make sure that the active Brushes are the default brushes. The default Photoshop brushes are shown on the image below, if that's not what you see, then follow the instructions below:

Now, that that is done input the following settings for our Brush tool (B):
  • Brush size: 200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Your brush now has the black color; so now, let's get ready to paint. Now that that's done, we are now set to paint! On the "darken 1" layer, paint this out using the brush settings:

  • Brush size: 400px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

  • Brush size: 1200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Now that that's done, we'll now proceed on fixing the light of the sky. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and put this layer above the "sky" layer, name this layer to "Light 1". Once that's done, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following settings:
  • Brush size: 200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: fffedd
