Create Gloomy House Scene in Photoshop

First of all, open the house image in photoshop. This image will be the background layer in the layer panel. Duplicate the house image (Ctrl+J) one time. Rename this duplicate layer house.

We can resize the document into a smaller size by going to image > image size. Set the size as the one indicated in the screenshot below.

step1c

Step 2

We will do some editing on the house by hiding some parts unnecessary like the twigs in front of the house. To do this purpose, we will cut out some parts of the lawn and use the cut out to cover the front twigs. The screenshot below shows the part of the lawn to be cut out. It is indicated in the red part.

step2b

Take the cutting tool that is familiar to you (I myself usually use the pen tool (P) to do this) and make a selection to the part to be cut out. After selecting the part, duplicate (Ctrl+J) to cut out it into a new single layer.

step2a

Now give this cutout layer a layer mask by going to layer > layer mask > reveal all. Mask the edges of the layer to make it well blended. Use a very soft (0% hardness) round brush (B) with low opacity to do this purpose. Here is the result:

step2d

Duplicate (Ctrl+J) the cutout layer one time. Move the duplicate to the part where the twigs are still visible.

step2e

Mask some the edges of this layer to have the result like the one below:
