RE: Need help with edge effect
are you asking for someone to do it for you (in which case this is the right place) or are you asking for indications on how to do it (in which case I'll move it to the "General" forum)?

RE: Need help with edge effect
First, prepare a picture of the buildings:
- load picture in Gimp
- Layer/Transparency/Add alpha channel (allow the layer to be transparent)
- scale it so that your subject has its final size (but keep the surroundings)
- do an ellipse selection around the subject
- Select/Feather, and enter something like 10% of your subject size
- Select/Invert (so you select everything but your subject)
- [Delete]: you have an ellipse with you subject and fading borders
- Layer/Autocrop layer (removes all the fully transparent margins)
- Image/Fit Canvas to layers (resizes image around layer)
- File/Save (save as XCF filetype)

Then, create a picture for your background
- File/Open as layers and the picture saved above
- Move image to where you want it
- In the Layers list, set the layer mode for the buildings layer to '"Burn"
- Adjust effect using opacity slider at top of Layers list
