Step 1


Start by creating a new document.Goto file>new and set the setting as shown in the image below.



Step 2


Now place the sand beach image to the main canvas by selecting File>place then locate the sand beach image and name it base.We use place command because photoshop automatically place the image as Smart Object.



Step 3


Now add a layer mask to the base image by selecting second button on layer panel or see the below image.Then pick the brush tool by pressing (B) on keyboard and gently paint with soft round black brush on the layer mask. You can see the result below.



Step 4


Now, add a Hue/Saturation(layer>new adjustment layer>hue/saturation or see the image below)adjustment layer then click the button shown in the image to create a clipping mask.By Creating Clipping mask this layer(Hue/Saturation) will only effect the layer which is clip to it not to the rest of the layers.Set the setting of the Hue/Saturation as shown in the image below.




Here are the results.


Step 5


Now, Place the sky image below the base layer.



Step 6


Now,Add a Curves and Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to sky and set the setting as shown in the image.





Here are the results.

Then change the blend mode to soft light and reduce the opacity to 65%.Here are the results.You can see that we have created a vignette effect.We will add more vignette effect to the scene at the end of this tutorial.



Step 8


Place the Rain texture above the nebula layer.



Step 9


Add a layer mask to the rain texture and paint with soft round black brush on layer mask to hide the unwanted part.You can see the result on layer mask as well as on the main canvas.

Step 10


Place the beach image to the canvas and activate the transform tool then scale it as shown in the image.Then change the blend mode of beach to Multiply.
