1.
 

Open photograph.

I have opened a random photo which was taken in Zadar, Croatia.

 
 
2.
 

Now we will add the second one.

Click above on File and select Place...

 
 
3.
 

Find your second photograph, select it and click Place.

 
 
4.
 

First transform the placed photograph as you want.

You can drag it, resize it and move it if you want. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us on forum ...

 
 
5.
 

Click on Commit transform button or press Enter when finished.

 
 
6.
 

Now click on Add layer mask.

 
 
7.
 

Select Gradient Tool (G).

 
 
8.
 

Press D key to select black and white colors.

Then select gradient pick like I did above on menu (see my pic).

 
 
9.
 

Now drag with mouse over the document to create the gradient which will reveal the lower photograph in layers palette.

Mask is used to reveal below's layer. Don't be afraid to make more gradient transitions. Photoshop will reset every new gradient that you will make, so just play.

 
 
10.
 

And here is my final image.
