In the picture above, you also see that I have made a copy of the background layer (Right click on the layer name in the layer palette and press Duplicate Layer). We will use this to recover those small branches of the tree in the front that have been lost in Blending Options.

Swich the Layer Mode of that duplicated layer to Soft light - this will softly lighten those parts of the underlying layer that are under the light parts of the top layer.

I know it is not a satisfactory explanation but this is not the tutorial on Layer Modes (in other words, I am not really sure how does this function work, I have just experimented, as I do often, and I liked the outcome :)

Here it comes, our long awaited piece of cake.
I hope you have learned something and if you scroll a bit down, there is one more example on Collages.

(You can use Curves on any layer to make subtle shifts in the lightness so that the overall picture will look natural. In the end use Layer/Flatten Image to join all the layers and use Curves once more to fine tune the picture)

If you are not sure about Curves and their potential, read our Understanding Curves tutorial.
Please continue reading and see also the following example.

Thank you for providing these tutorials. I really like the way you use your own photographs with all their inherent difficulties. The results are great. I look forward to reading the other tutorials.
