How to Create a Sci-Fi Landscape Photo Manipulation with Adobe Photoshop

Add a mask to this layer and use a hard black brush to separate this shape into five pieces (hold the Shift key while doing it). 

Step 44

Duplicate it five times and use Ctrl+T to vary their size. Move them to the different positions inside the frame.

Step 45

Create a new layer and hit T to activate the Text Tool. Choose Agency FB font (or any font you feel suitable) with the color #66cef9 and the size of 10 pt to type 4523.8960 or any numbers you like.  Move the numbers to the left of the biggest planet . 

Make four layers and use the Text Tool with the same color to type different numbers below or above the planets. This step is to make some codes for them. You can change the size of the numbers to fit the size of the planets.

Step 46

Double click the first text layer, choose Outer Glow. Set the color of glow to #61dceb.

Right click this layer, choose Copy Layer Style. Hold the Shift key and choose all other text layers and then right click the selected layers, choose Paste Layer Style.

Step 47

Create a new layer and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to make a square on the canvas. Fill this selection with the color #66cef9

Step 48

Double click this layer, choose Outer Glow. Set the color of glow to #79c0cf

Duplicate this layer many times and resize them to be smaller. Arrange them around the codes of the planets to make some virtual buttons. I've lowered the opacity of the buttons around the planet on the right to 50% to fit the light/shadow there.

Step 49

Create a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #88c0bf to paint more glow and light for the areas around the planets and the smallest column. Change this layer mode to Overlay 100%.

Step 50

Make a Selective Color adjustment layer on top of the layers and change the Cyans settings:

Add a Color Balance adjustment and change the Midtones and Highlights values:

Step 51

Make a new layer below the column group and use a soft brush with the color #0e1213 to paint shadow for the left column on the ground. Add a mask to this layer and use a medium-soft black brush to refine the shadow to fit the main light source.
