Yes... I've been working with Photoshop since it was version 2.0. The "poor" image correction is actually very good, it's probably an automatic filter applied to each incoming image (except the reference shots), and they were sloppy in not creating a "mask" so that the corrections wouldn't apply to the lander base. I tried brining the color layers back to match the original, and it's impossible. Too much color information has been lost.

Then that puts into doubt the reference shot too doesn't it? In any event, there is a significant modification of color in the panorama, as compared to the color close-up of the sundial.
