Windows Grid too dark

When using window and desktop grid it is not easy to fast identify the window you want to pick. There is a effect that dims the thumbnail window.
So if you use black theme or screen NOT too bright you will take 3 or 4 seconds to identify the windows you want to pick.
For usabilitie purpose, i think this efect should not be present above the thumbnail windows. Should be removed.
For example gnome grid is easy to pick your windows. There is no dim effect.
I use desktop grip hundreds time every day and i spend some minutes every day to pick the choosen windows.

1. Open a lot of windows
2. Run qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut Expose
3. Run qdbus org.kde.kglobalaccel /component/kwin org.kde.kglobalaccel.Component.invokeShortcut Expose

Window thubnail is too dark. Not easy to fast find some window

Brighter windows to fast find some window.
Just remove the dim effect
