Distort and warp to meld the clouds and then brightness/contrast and color adjustment layers

(Tip: If you use Layer > New Adjustment Layer, you can change all of it or just some of it and if you don't like the result, you can delete the adjustment layer and start again. Try Ctrl + i to invert the adjustment layer, then use a white brush to reveal the changes just where you want them.)
