I dug up one of my very earliest digital photographs, taken back in early 2000, 21 years ago.  It was shot on a floppy-disk camera, at original resolution of 640x480, 1/3" CCD sensor, heavy compression JPG.  I played around with it using Gigapixel to see how much I could increase that tiny resolution - the sunset was spectacular, but early digital technology wasn't too spectacular yet, and my knowledge of computers and digital imagery was very low!

Another older photo I went back to try to retouch a bit - it was a more recent 5MP camera, but was cropped a bit and was noisy...still one of the more dramatic skies I've ever seen, with sunset at departure combined with huge supercell raincloud hovering over the volcanic mountain and rainforest of St. Lucia and a rainbow thrown in for a bonus:
