This image was created in Photoshop CS5.
The technique involves several layers cut out. the masked man, the tree, the planet and the ground. I have used a few filters but not many, a gradient glow and a smoke effect. Brightness and contrast has been altered on the various layers several times. vibrance, hue and saturation also altered. the layers were then blended (cannot remember which blends) an antique frame was then added by increasing the canvas. Lastly an overall scratchy texture was used above the whole image once again using blending options and opacity.
