Next go to layer > new adjustment layers > photo filter. Set this layer to normal at 100% opacity.
Now open the model to the document. With transform tool, scale its size to proporsionally fir the scene. Then create a new layer above the model. Give this layer a clipping mask and set it to overlay blending at 100% opacity. On this new layer, paint soft white color around the areas of legs (pointed with red arrows).
Again create a new layer with a clipping mask above the white layer previously made. Fill this layer with black and set it to color dodge at 100% opacity. On this layer, paint orange color on the areas pointed by the red arrows to give them more highlight.
Next, create another new layer above all the other layers. Paint a soft white color on the area marked in red circle. This white color will give stronger light to the scene. Set this layer to screen at 100% opacity.
finally, create again one more new layer. On this layer, paint the ground supposed to be the place where the soldier was standing. I used spatter brushes with black color to paint the ground:
Here is the final result:
