Step 31

In this step I'll make mist effect for model to be intergrated better with misty background. Create a new layer and I place it on the top. Use Lasso Tool ( press L to choose this tool) and draw a selection around model, set feather for it = 30:

Fill this selection with color #b6bcd0 and lower opacity to 10%:

Step 32

We will make rain in this step. We will make rain falling straightly from above to be suitable with direction of umbrella. Make a new layer and fill it with black. Choose Filter-Noise-Add Noise:

After adding noise, choose Image-Adjustment-Threshold:

Then click Filter-Blur-Motion Blur:

rain32b

After that press Cmd/Ctrl+L to open Levels dialog:

rain32c

Change the mode to Screen 50%:

rain32d

Duplicate this layer and apply a filter to make rain look softer and more realistic. On duplicated rain layer, choose Filter-Artistic-Poster Edges:

Name these layers as "rain 1" and "rain 2". With each rain layer, I add layer mask to blur rain parts to get natural look ( use brush with low opacity):

rain32g

Because the cover of umbrella, a part around dress bottom( on the lake) is not affected much by falling rain so I only add a little ripple, drop splash as well as trim rain drops falling around.

Step 33

In this step we will make wet effect for umbrella. Create a new layer above drop splashes layer and I use brush and color #5e7293, hardness from 100% to paint as shown below. Change the mode to Multipy 70%. You should vary opacity and the size of brush because there are some parts which need to be wetter than the rest:

Apply Gassian Blur with 9px:

I use a new layer to add some smaller rain traces on umbrella. Take hard brush with same color, small size ( 2-3 px) and paint on umbrella. Apply Gassian Blur with 1.5 px:

rain33c

Step 34

I want to add some rain drops on umbrella. Make a new layer, I use white brush with hardness 30-50% and 3-5 px to spot on umbrella and change the mode to Soft light 100%. Lower the fill to 0% and apply Bevel and Emboss, Inner Shadow from Blending options:
