Steps to create a road effect after storm: 

After a storm, there will be puddles, reflecting the sky on both sides of the road. To be able to create the road background effect after raining, we need to combine many tools together, specifically how to do it as follows: 

Step 1: First we need to open the photo. To open an image, on the menu bar, select File => Open => Select the image to open => OK. 

Or you can press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+O then select the image to open and click OK. Double click on the background layer to unlock it, now we will have layer 0.

Step 2: We need to duplicate layer 0 by pressing Ctrl+J. Now we have layer 0 copy.

Step 3: At layer 0 copy, press Ctrl+T, then right-click and select Flip Vertical.

Step 4: Still at layer 0 copy, we will create a mask for it by selecting Add layer mask in the lower right corner of the layer panel.

Step 5: Set the Foreground color to black, then use the Brush tool on the toolbar with the appropriate size to paint away unnecessary parts, we only keep the image part on the road surface to create the effect. The road surface after raining has reflections under the water surface.

Click the mask section to adjust the brightness there. Adjust points to get the most realistic, consistent brightness.
