Without Arcangel it would look sad with you. But I am happy for you that you had this high income there, Alexandre!

Congrats on the book cover, but I'm confused: they bought your image and mostly changed it?  Other than the concept, I don't see much of your original image in the final.  New hair, new coat, new bokeh, etc.  Seems like it would have been less work for them to just shoot what they wanted rather than heavily Photoshop a stock image.

But I guess paying one Photoshop guy is cheaper than paying a model, photographer, and scouting a location.

Came here to post the same, but thinking it over you're probably right.
Way less effort and money to have the adjustments done in Photoshop than starting from scratch an organizing everything yourself.

Sill weird to see how little is left from the original shot.

Its common with book covers.  I had one where my photo was used as a background overlaid with models in period outfits. 

There's a lot of fiddling and adjusting with book covers
