ACA-Tuning a Photo

Finally I had the time and energy to put together short movie behind my way to work with Composite photography.
What does not show in the movie is the time behind the postprocess (calculated 20h). Adding to this is a lot of work that will never see daylight again. Some idéas through the process that looked good in my head however came out totally wrong. Layers upon layers of photos, adjustment layers, groups, tweaking, pushing, pulling, clone stamping, painting, adding, erasing. In the end I had to make a merged copy to work on to give the processor some spare time and to not end up crashing into the limit of my 8GB RAM.
