How to Create a Wonderland Photo Manipulation with Photoshop

Step 47

Create a new layer below all of the mushroom layers. Use a soft brush with the color #1a1a03 with the opacity about 40%  to paint a soft shadow for the mushrooms on the hidden side on the left.

Step 48

Open the butterflies image and take different butterflies to add to the sky area. I've added a big one to the foreground and apply a Gaussian Blur of 6 px to it .

Step 49

Apply a Gaussian Blur of 4 px to each of the small butterffy layers in the lower positions.

Step 50

Create a Curves adjustment layer for the biggest butterfly to increase the haze on its lower body a bit. On this layer mask, paint on its top to reduce the effect there. 

Step 51

On each of the smaller butterflies on the sky, make a new Color Fill layer and pick the color #e4d7c2. Lower the opacity of these fill layers to 30% and 35% or any values you feel good. 

Step 52

Make a group for the butterfly layers and add a Curves adjustment layer to increase a dreamy effect for them. On the layer mask, use a soft black brush with the opacity about 30-50% to reduce the hazy effect on the one on the foreground and on the wings of the biggest butterfly or any details if needed.

Step 53

Create a Gradient Map adjustment layer on top of the layers and pick the colors #480404 and #006020. Lower the opacity of this layer to 20%.

Step 54

Make a Color Balance adjustment layer and change the Midtones and Highlights settings. 

Step 55

Add a Photo Filter adjustment layer and pick the color #f5c88d

Step 56

Create a Curves adjustment layer to increase the contrast of the whole scene.

Make a Vibrance adjustment layer to enhance the final effect:
