The world ain’t as half as bad, as they paint it to be

I so wanted to share the original 90MP version of this image with you all but it turns out that flickr won't let me, nor will it let me post the original 60MB JPEG. Sigh! Nevermind. The photoshoot was inspired by the song, Come Home by OneRepublic. Planned the shoot last month for summer holidays and here it is. The shoot took about an hour and post-processing 17 hours. And that's because I had no huge room to take a photo from head to toe and had to take several shots, starting from head to toe, merge them in photoshop, make them look real, add the world map and making that look real, add texture, add text, wait for ages after saving PSDs and JPGs as the image is about 90MP now and about 3GB PSD. It's such a pain working on high resolution lossless format images. Do let me know if you've got tips on how to make your PS workflow smooth and fast without losing any wanted details as in my case.
