In this tutorial, I used the following:

1. Photoshop CC (the steps can be done in Photoshop Elements except the group opacity control is different)

2. Photoshop Actions: Soft Hazes (see details at this link: http://www.colourthempretty.com/soft-hazes-ps-cs5-cs6-cc-actions.html)

 

I started from this photo :)

To rotate an image, go to Menu then click Image > Image Rotation > 90° CCW (for this image).

I played the action: BASE (Play First before Creative Effects) and turned on Vivid and Rich Matte.

I added the action: Bittersweet and removed the effect of gradient on the subject by painting on the layer mask as shown below.

Next, I added the action: Candy and copied the layer mask in Bittersweet's "bi_Gradient" layer (see illustration above) to Candy's "ca_Gradient 1", "ca_Gradient 2" and "ca_Gradient 3" (see illustration below). To copy a layer mask to another layer, click on the layer mask and drag it to the destination layer while pressing the Alt/Opt key.
