Step 1

Create a new document with a trasparent background.

Size:

  • Width 1500px
  • Height: 2000px

step-001


Step 2

Go to File > Place and open the ‘Railway’ Stock.

step-002


Step 3

Go to Edit > Free Transform and choose ‘Rotate’. Rotate a bit the image to through right to fix the Railway prospective. Then choose ‘Scale’ to fit the canvas size. Rename the layer to ‘Railway’.

step-003


Step 4

We are going to select the sky so we can replace it with another one. Go to Channel and select the channel that has more contrast. In this case the Blue one. The image will turn to Black & White but don’t worry, everything it’s normal. If you don’t see the Channels then go to Window and select Channel.

step-004


Step 5

Now right click on the Blue channel and choose ‘Duplicate channel’. Deselect the Blue Channel and select the Blue copy.

step-005


Step 6

To make a selection of the sky we have to paint with black on the copy of the Blue channel. Before painting we can help ourselves running a Level adjustment on it. Go to Image > Adjustments > Levels. We have to give more contrast. Put the settings I set below and you will see that the sky will be white.

Step 7

Now we paint with black over the parts we don’t want. Brush has to be 100% Opacity.

step-008


Step 8

Now we are ready for our selection. Place the mouse on the Blue copy channel. Keep pressed CTRL and press left click on the mouse. The white part will be selected.

step-009


Step 9

We want to keep the part below so we have to invert the selection. Go to Select > Inverse. The selection is now inverted.

Step 10

Delete the Blue copy channel and go back to the Layers panel. As you can see the image isn’t black & white anymore and the lower part is selected. Now just click the Layer Mask and the sky will disappear.
