Right click on the layer BIG SPLASH and select Duplicate layer. Name it SMALL SPLASH and place it above the layer MAIN WAVE. Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal. Press Ctrl + T and resize the splash on about 80% of the original size. Place the splash as you can see on the picture below.


Step 15 – Splash Brushes

The bottom part of the waves would look better if it has more details. You add them by painting more water splashes. Download these brushes and install them into the Photoshop. If you don’t know how to install brushes you can take a look at this tutorial. Grab the Brush Tool (B) and select one of the brushes you’ve just installed. Now Alt click on some light grey color of the waves (this works the same way as Eyedropper Tool) and pait few splashes.


Step 16 – Adding Water on the Floor

There should be some water on the floor. To add it drag the photo with the wave into the manipulation once again. Place it on the top of your layers and name it e.g. WATER ON THE FLOOR. Press Ctrl + T and resize it to get something similar to the picture below.


Add vector mask to the layer. Grab the Brush Tool (B), select soft round brush and pick black color. Paint over the waves which should disappear. Press Ctrl + Shift + U to desaturate the water. Then change the Blending Mode on Lighten. Drag the stock photo into the manipulation once again, place it on the right side and do the same process as on the left side.


Step 17 – Edge of the Wall

As you might see the edge between the floor and upper part of the wall is too brown and doesn’t fit to the rest of the manipulation. To fix it add new layer on the top of your layers and name it GREY EDGE. Grab the Brush Tool (B), select soft round brush and pick some mid grey color. Paint line over the edge. Then change the Blending Mode of this layer from Normal to Color. Below you can see how the layer looks with Normal and Color Blending Mode.
