Step 1. In the beginning you have to be defined with the size of the canvas. It’s simple – we already know what we want to do. Let’s take the photo of our tone, will cut out accurately, and the size of the canvas we shall make twice more longer on a vertical.
Step 2. Now we insert the picture which was cut out lately. Its place will be from above, and a place of its reflection – from below. We select and copy it on the new layer.

Step 3. We’ll place it from below. Than with any way which is convenient to you, we reflect the picture across, saving the size. If you did everything correctly, so the interval between photos will not exist. They will be reflected symmetrically.

Step 4. We select lower part. By means of the brush with big size (color: #04274d) in the Color Mode, Opacity – 100%, we’ll recolor all selected part. (Do not pass any slightest site!)

Step 5. We use Burn Tool in the Midtones Mode, Opacity – 100% to black out the lower part. We cover all selected area.

Step 6. Let’s correct the dark part of the collage by means of Smudge Tool (brush for which we put Rough Round Bristle, approximately size 150px.) Only some accurate touches, no more.

Step 7. We insert the sky texture for the light part of the collage. We reduce it till the same size, so it would be placed beautifully and evenly.

Step 8. We change the style of layer with the texture for Overlay, Fill: 100%.

Step 9. So we pass to the dark part of the collage. We pick out for it another texture of sky, with darker and threatening clouds. We also change the size on necessary and place it above the layer with the dark part.

Step 10. Now we change the style of the layer with the second texture on Soft Light, Fill: 100%.

Step 11. To get rid of by-effect (yellowish shades) we will select the layer with the texture and will paint it over with the same brush, with the same adjustments and color with which we painted over the dark area.

Step 12. Let’s make the sky more fantastic and interesting. This time we will begin with a dark part of the collage. We will need a picture of the planet on the black background for this. We transfer the planet on a layer above the others.

Step 13. We change the style of the layer with the planet to Linear Dodge, Fill: 100%, and we reduce its size a little. Now we have to find the similar planet for the upper part. We’ll make its size the same with the first planet’s size. With help of Eraser Tool we’ll wipe up superfluous part, which will be hiding by the cloud.

Step 14. Than we change the style of the layer with the second planet to Linear Dodge, Fill: 100%.

Step 15. Let’s add some stars in the sky. Do not go too far.

Step 16. By means of the complex brushes in the form of cracks we make a creative pattern with Dodge Tool in Highlights Mode, Fill: 100%. We draw it on the layer with the photo of the sky, but not on the layer with texture. (When we put the pattern the cursor does not move, the click repeats three times!)

Step 17. The same we do with the lower part of the collage, but this time the pattern will “go” vertically. This will emphasize the contrast of the dark and light part.

That’s all. I hope that the result will please you the same as me.

I prefer the way it looks at stage 15 compared to the final, I don’t see the need to add in the complex grunge parts.

You actually did the cloud reflections on the water wrong. In the sky they are coming from the left, where as on the water they are coming from the right. If it was a true reflection they would be coming from the same side. All you have to do is flip vertical but it looks like you just rotated it 180 degrees which is not the same effect. Nice try though…
