Take two images and combine them with the vector mask

Put the image of MJ on top of the skyline photo.
Rename both layers - Chicago Skyline & MJ
Click on the MJ layer, now click on "Add Vector Mask" at the bottom
Select the Gradient tool.  In the options toolbar at the top, make sure it says "Linear Gradient"
Draw a line from MJ's number to the bottom of his picture.
