The Morning Walk

So I took this B&W background photo the other morning on my iPhone 6 using the free app Lenka.  I played around with the Lenka settings so the original photo was blurred and grainy when I took it. 

I extracted the girl from another photo and placed her on the BG and also added the wolf.  I then changed them to blend in more with the original photo - blur and grain.  I added fog and mist, some light beams, a slight vignette and a couple textures.  Finishing up with a brightness/ contrast adjustment layer.
