25 images you won’t believe aren’t photoshopped

Category: Photography

When you read or hear somewhere that an image has been “Photoshopped” it usually means that it has been altered in a way that it isn’t considered a photograph anymore, and it becomes a photorealistic composition or a heavily retouched image.

That differs a lot from the concept of post-processing, which is a way to enhance or correct certain aspects of a photograph without altering the original composition and intention of the photographer when taking the shot. The following images certainly have some post-processing corrections applied, but, believe it or not, are not altered, or “photoshopped” in any way.
