This is very good! I love the image, but, you did a great job explaining things. You were very thorough!
There is another way to do Step 12, that I know about. Before you flatten the image, instead, hit 'Control'+'Alt'+'Shift'+'E' (PC); Command-Option-Shift-E (Mac). This will create a flattened comp of all the layers while leaving all the layers intact beneath it. You have to select the top-most layer to use this shortcut. Also, you must have at least 2 layers, even if one is blank. This also comes in handy when you want to use multiple layer effects, where they cannot be all done in one layer.
I'm off to try this one out! You have inspired me! Thank you!!

This is a cool image. The only issue I have with it is that the lighting is wrong - the light source is behind the castle - but the castle is clearly lit from the left, not behind. When I put my images together, I am always trying to ensure the lighting is always consistent. Other that that, I really like the final result.
