Camera Does Not Lie ...part II

Well, what the human eye sees and what the camera "captures" often is quite different.

A beautiful display of fireworks on the 4th of July is a good example.

The small digital camera I have was challenged to be steady yet with a shutter speed slow enough to capture the bright images.

Some it did better than others. I clicked about 50 times to get 4 usable pictures.

A wonderful manipulation tool is called PhotoShop and it allows you to create a layer for each photo.

Think of a stack of glass slides with one fiery burst on each.

You can change and adjust each layer, moving images around and, finally, combine ALL the layers.

I like the finished photo although my eye never saw it quite that way the evening of July 4.
