Dave Tomek from Google+ had shot the original image in this video. During a conversation, he asked me if I would like to take a crack at editing the raw image, which I accepted.
This video demonstrates the workflow that I have followed to get from the original image, to the final image.
Tools used:
Adobe Photoshop
Nik Color Efex
Nik Viveza
Imageonomics Noiseware
