Rain Special Effects

Okay everyone, I've been a busy bee, or something like that. Just trying out some different techniques I've been learning in Photoshop. I'd like to thank the members of the NAPP for all the insight. They are all a lot smarter than me. So this picture below is a statue of some sort that I can't quite remember why it was where it was. However, the statue is/was in Key West, FL on one of the public beaches. I wanted to try out this rain effect I had learned and thought perhaps this statue would make a good test subject. I've included the original which you will may find a bit dull. Hence the special effect added to it. Let me know what you think, or should I just hang up my bag of Photoshop and move along.  Thanks for stopping by and until next time - Tim G.
