While playing with the swimming photos in Photoshop, I discovered how cool a digital camera can be. As I played with the levels in a picture that the background looked almost completely black, the background began to appear. In real life you could really only see just faintly what was in the background, but in pictures with a traditional camera, black is what I would have been stuck with. Don’t ask me how it works to be able to pick up the background at night, maybe Shawn could tell you, he seems to know all this kind of stuff, but with a digital camera it gets it somehow and I can make it appear! Compare the original and the lightened one:
