Make a new layer and use a soft brush with the same color and the opacity about 22% to paint more fur on the lower part of the deer's body to reduce the contrast there.
Make a Color Balance adjustment layer and alter the Midtones values:
Add a Curves adjustment layer and reduce the lightness. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the contour of the deer to reveal the light there.
Create another Curves adjustment layer to reduce the contrast on the deer. On this layer mask, paint on the deer's contour to keep the light there.
Make a Photo Filter adjustment layer and pick the color #0196ec to make the deer's color fit the background.
Add a new layer and use a small brush with the color #94e0e3 to paint bright furs on the front of the deer.
Create a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #96d5c6 to increase the light on the deer. Change this layer mode to Overlay 100%.
Add a new layer below the deer's one and make shadow for the deer as done with the trees. I've lowered the shadow's layer to 40%.
Place the underwater image onto the horns and change this layer mode to Hard Light 100%.
Add a mask to this layer and use a hard black brush to erase the part outside the horns.
Make a Color Balance adjustment layer and change the Midtones settings:
Create a Curves adjustment layer to darken the left of the underwater part. Paint on the rest to keep its contrast.
Add another Curves adjustment layer to brighten the middle of the underwater part. The selected areas show where to paint on the layer mask.
Open the sea image and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) to select a part in the middle of the sea to add to the top of the horns. Use Ctrl+T to make this part thinner and add a mask to this layer. Use a hard black brush to remove the part outside the horns.
Create a Color Balance adjustment layer to change the color of the sea's surface.
Add a Curves adjustment layer to bring more light to the sea part. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush with the opacity about 5-10% to reduce the light on the details which are too bright.
