Step 10

Open the sky 2 image and place it over the sky of the landscape 1 image. 

Change this layer mask to Soft Light 100% and add a mask to this layer. Use a soft black brush to remove the part covered the ground and mountains.

Step 11

Open the soil image. I've chosen the image 26 but feel free to take your own. Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) to select the part on the bottom and add it to the part below the landscape 1 image. Use Ctrl+T to make this part thinner. Set this layer on top of the layers.

Step 12

Add a mask to this layer and use a hard black brush to erase the hard edges and trim the contour of this part to make it look more natural.

Step 16

Make a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #8e9294 to paint on the bottom of the soil. Change this layer mask to Color 100% and use a layer mask to reduce this effect on the top of the soil.

Step 17

Open the moon image and isolate it from the dark background . Move it to the underground and place it in the space between the trees.

Step 18

Double click the moon layer, choose Outer Glow.  Set the color of glow to #f8f6f0 to add some glowing light outside the moon.

Step 19

Make a Curves adjustment layer to increase the glowing light on the moon.

Step 20

Open the birds 1 image and isolate them from the white background using the Magic Wand Tool (W) or any tools you're familiar with. Take different birds to add to the moon area and to the area near the sun above. Change the size of the birds to make their position in the different distances from the viewer. This way is to make some depth of the whole scene.
