mhh..the top of the building should fade into the clouds/mist/fog..but instead it's really sharp and visible.. a simple scene like this it's easier to manage in a real 3D app and the result will be better in my opinion.. plugins cant help you all the times..

Haven't watched the tutorial, and I'm not sure if this example was from this tut, or this tut was from this, but check this out, this is an awesome version of this effect.

Nice effect, but I think the rain drops should be thinner, more transparent and numerous. There definitely needs to be a flash of blue or white light somewhere to make the lightening more realistic.

Great tut, wish I understood German I would scoop up the DVD's quick.
I worked on this last night and instead of using a solid layer for the clouds lighting up I just applied multiple instances of CC light rays directly to the cloud layer and it gave a great effect. Can't wait for more tuts Robert!
