After taking another look at the Catching Rain reference photo I realized that including the rain in the reference would make this easier. So there are three parts to this:
1. The rain
2. The reflections from the wet sidewalk
3. Splashes from the rain hitting the sidewalk
This version of the reference has two of the three. Unfortunately, I can’t create the type of brush I need with Photoshop Elements. I will need Jeanette to create a brush for me.
Oh yea, and I didn’t have a shadow for Nick in the last version.
