I am using a drop shadow (D/S) of V 0 H 5, Opacity 85, blur 10, color black throughout the tutorial unless otherwise stated.

Let's get started.

Open a new 750x750 transparent image.  We will resize later.

Open Moon, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 50% and move to the top center.

Open Tree 1, copy and close the original.  Paste as a new layer and resize 80%.  Move to the upper right side.  Duplicate and resize 70%.  Move it to the left so it covers the moon.  Drop shadow each layer.
