Rain covered road and spray effects

Hi Everyone

I've just been looking at http://www.saddingtonbaynes.com/projects/volvo/ the second image has a very wet looking road, and some spray and water droplets on the vehicle. I also love the slightly distorted wheel reflections.

Does anyone know what techniques I need to use in Photoshop to get this effect?

Kind regards

M

Hi M,

It looks like something using the Fibers filter in photoshop.

I tried a few things here and this is the closest I could get to that effect:

-Set your foreground color to black and background color to white
-Create a new layer
-Fill layer with black
-Filter>Render>Fibers
-Set Variance to 60 and Strength to 5
-Filter>Blur>Motion Blur
-Set Angle to -60 and Distance to 70
-Change Layer Blend Mode to Screen
-Image>Adjustments>Levels
-Click and drag the left left shadow's handle of the histogram and drag it toward the right until you have the density of rain you want.

There may be a better way, but that's the closest I could get to it. You may want to try different blend modes and values to get the effect you want.

Hope that helps.

-Jeremy

Thanks all. I tried to a method with the falling rain using noise, motion bluring, adjusting the levels and the changing the blending mode. It's not too bad, but I may try the method above as an alternative to see which one works out best.

What about the road and spray, and how that texture been achieved?

They make some very cool stuff. I know at least one person that used to post here said he worked there. Anyway the splashes are probably comped in. It makes more sense than trying to draw them. That doesn't mean they aren't color corrected or retouched in any way to help them fit just right. I just mean the origins are likely photographic even if they weren't shot in the same place.

Random water splashes shot separately. Then just brushed/screened in.

Nothing too fancy.
