Love it! (Have you made a video about how - the hell - did you do this incredible work? Or can you explain it? ;) ) AMAZING JOB man!

Thanks! I don't have a video, but I can give you a short explanation here:
The water is composed of warped stock photos. The clouds and flag are stock too.
We shot many poses with the models (a family), in their living room. The boat, rope and mast are painted digitally with added photo textures. The sails are bedsheets photographed in the back yard.
That's about it I guess.
Thanks for your interest!

Crazy Cool Photoshop work. I'm a retired professional Photoshop artist and this is some of the best work I've ever seen. Bravo!

This is very tough to pull off well and you really nailed it. Beautifully done !

something is terribly wrong with the scale of the elements in the photo ( people vs sailboat )
