This effect is called "emboss."

Emboss is a decorative effect designed to "rise" the main part
of the image relative to its background. This filter locates contrast
lines of the image and adds shadows to them to imitate "depressed"
areas. The lighter is the area, the more "depressed" it will appear.

I love the emboss effect and use it a lot in Photoshop Elements when I do scrapbook pages. Beautiful picture!!

Very cool! The background reminds me of a window with rain on it.
