Blending images with haze

This is a short tutorial I wrote for CRPhotomanipulation 's Manip Academy project. 
I explained a few tips for blending an object into a hazed landscape background. This small guide will probably be most useful for people who already got the hang of the most basic photoshop tools because I don't explain how to create adjustment layers or how to work with blending modes. For that I refer to other tutorials.
Shoot if you have any questions!

The stock images I used are the following:

Thanks a lot to the stock providers!

The more options I have to blend things and give them a better result the happier I am, this was extremely useful in not only that department but it also gave me knowledge about the bluish environmental haze. I honestly never gave its color much thought and never bothered to look it up.
