onOne / Add a Wet, Shiny Look to Urban Landscapes

Via Zucchelli, Rome, Italy

I live in Southern California. We don't get a lot of rain. Strikingly little, in fact. I've grown so accustomed to day after day of clear weather, I sometimes get annoyed when it does rain. When I want a little rain to add some shine and dimension to street scenes, I don't get rain.

Karma, baby.

Fortunately, adding a wet look to urban landscapes is easily done in post-processing. In the short video below, I use an adjustment brush in Perfect Effects to spruce up a cobblestone street.

The same technique also works to add shine to architecture photos, too.
