Worked very well, however...

I think the technique worked very well on the supplied images. In the real world, the layers used to create the difference mode black won't be the same (identical) image. This may make it more difficult to get a pure black for selecting the extraction subject. Taking identical background images with the commotion of a wedding might prove to be difficult.
Still appears to be a potentially useful technique and worth practicing.
