Open Photoshop and create a new 1280x768 pixel document (File > New).

 

1.Now >brush tool(soft edges) 10% white colour on black background.Like foggy effect.

2.Sky image>edit>free transform.Eraser tool -what i don't need there.Now i have first image and foggy background.

 

3.Waterfall image>edit>free transform and again eraser tool.I changed this image to b&w>image>adjustment>desaturate or b&w.Now i have one background and two images together-1 background and 2 layers .

4.Now Statue image-just one figure from original psd file.Eraser tool again to remove the unnecessary parts.Desturate and some brightness changes>image>adjustment>brightness or levels or curves.I have 3 images together plus background.

 

5.Next step-another image-balcony.Desaturation,eraser tool-free transformation.Blending mood multiply.Most of the time multiply or overlay.Now i have 4 images plus background.Save as psd file-when something go wrong,i can start again,because now i want merge layers together and after that i can't moving more with images.Merge layers together>ctrl-E. Just one layer-all images plus background together.

6.Copy layer and i can use burn tool ,dodge tool  and brush tool for last tweaking.Now Color efex pro for colours.This part is about playing with that,what is looking better ,more colors together.Bi color filters or cross processing,cross balance-always different result.

7.Last image-birds.Blending mode> screen and again free transform and eraser tool.

8. Final step -some last tweaking like soft filter or foggy mood...etc.

Thank you for your time,really easy stuff-no time for something bigger.....!

Hi! I just had to tell you how fascinating I find your illustration! I was browsing on google image for something else, but I saw this and it really caught my atention for a good minute. I taugh you might want to know that, trough a whole lot of beautiful images, it's this one that fascinates me (and it really isn't what I was looking for). Keep up the good wor, I love your style!
