Since there’s a heavy rain going the sky should be a bit darker to reflect this situation and also to create a bit of a vignette effect (darker areas on the edges lead the eye towards the center of the scene).
Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Overlay. With a black round soft brush at 5% Opacity paint over the upper edges of the sky as shown below.
Repeat step 81 but this time apply a 600px Gaussian Blur effect. Again the effect will be too strong in the underwater section of our scene so use a layer mask and hide that region.
Let’s add some more white mist on the guy. Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Color Dodge. With a white round soft brush at 10% opacity paint over the hair, the umbrella and the shoulder as shown below to add some nice shiny mist.
No scene would be complete without the classical lens flare. Create a new layer and fill it with black. Apply a 105mm prime render flare by going to Filter > Render > Lens Flare. Try to position the flare as shown below.
Change the blending mode of the lens flare to Screen to get rid of the black color and use a layer mask to hide most of the lens flare except the area shown below.
