First of all, download stock images from above link. Now drag the women's image in Photoshop. After open the image, select Pen Tool from the left bar of Photoshop. And cut the women's out. After that, click mask icon from Layer Panel.
Now, go to File > New to create a new page in Photoshop. A new window will appear in front of you. Set the Width 10 inch, Height 7 inch and Resolution 72 Pixel or 300 Pixel.
After creating the new page, you need to drag the women's image into new page. If need to resize, press Ctrl+T from your keyboard to resize. Look at the screenshot below.
At this moment, we needs to import 2 different stocks in Photoshop (must be in same page). First import the Runway image, and next add the Sky image. If need to resize, press Ctrl+T from your keyboard to resize. Look at the screenshot below.
Select the Sky image's layer and click mask icon from Layer Panel (See the screenshot below). After that, select Gradient Tool from left bar from your Photoshop.
In this step, we'll create shadow for realistic of this poster. Okay, create a new layer under the girl's layer, that means 'Layer 1'. Then select brush tool and select soft brush and hit under foot of the girl.
Also decrease the opacity of this layer and go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set the radius 8.5. And then hit OK button.

After that, go to Edit > Fill and select Fill Foreground Color and then click OK button. Also decrease the opacity of this layer into 75-85.
In this step, we will import two different stock. Firstly, Import an another stock image 'bubbles' from stock gallery, that I shared above. Send this layer under 'Layer 1'. Also set it's blending mood into screen and decrease the opacity a little bit.
Firstly, Import an another stock image '1908772' from stock gallery, that I shared above. Send this layer under 'Layer 1' and above the layer of 'bubbles'. Also set it's blending mood into screen and decrease the opacity a little bit.
Now, create a light effect as usual we do. Create a new layer and select 2 different color. Then select brush tool and hit on the middle step by step. First, Red, and last, white. And set its blending mood to screen. Must move the layer and set, where it looks fine.
Import the 'Helicopter' stock in Photoshop. Now send it under the layer of light, that we created in previous step. Press Ctrl+T to transform if needs.
Add a Light brush under the Helicopter. Now import the spark image from stock gallery. And set it's blending mood to screen.
