From day to night

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

Once you’ve cre­ated an ef­fect like this it’s easy to go from day to night. First, add a Gra­di­ent Map ad­just­ment layer (as in Step 1) and then cus­tomise the gra­di­ent so that the blend goes from black to dark blue (try #455E78 here). Next, fine-tune the light­ness of the im­age us­ing a Lev­els ad­just­ment layer un­til it looks suit­ably moody. Fi­nally, hit Ctrl/Cmd+Shift+Alt +E to merge a copy of all the lay­ers, then grab the Burn tool, with Range set to Mid­tones and Strength at 20%, then paint to darken down the fore­ground, gen­tly hid­ing the de­tails that would nat­u­rally be in near-dark­ness.
