kayaking in Switzerland (editing in PS)

Before we got in our kayaks (Hallwilersee in Switzerland), we had a quick photo session. Photoshop file made up of 15+ layers to create this high contrast, illustrative look. 100% non-destructive method. I also created a magazine cover mock-up for fun.


Strobist info:

Morning, storm clouds and overcast.

Flat light.

Underexposed BG.

2 bare flashes (1/16th?) on either side of subject slightly behind (on light stands).

1 flash behind/right of camera for slight fill on subject. I would have preferred a shoot-through umbrella on this flash but high storm winds prevented this.
