why is my hi res pdf file size so small?

Where did all the Mb go?

Im putting together an ad of which a hi res pdf is required. The ad features a composite which is 47mb in size and various other elements, but the size of my finished hi res pdf is only 1mb, I know pdfing greatly reduces file sizes but surely this cant be right?
