Step 7.) Now I’m going to apply burning technique to the image by adding a new layer, and applying radial gradient then change the layer mode to ‘Linear Burn’ and play around with the opacity Please visit our Easy Burn Technique with Photoshop tutorial for more information.

Step 8.) This is how I did the soft-effect to the image. Duplicate the background layer, apply gaussian blur (mine is 8.0), add a layer mask and apply radial gradient with black is your foreground color and white is your background color
