Compare the terminator lines while looking at magnified images (zoom in).
The former looks jagged and unnatural, almost as if the image is over-processed or cropped, the latter looks like it fades out more naturally, see the
If I had to guess I'd say the AS08 terminator line comes from a more natural looking image, with faded colors.
The colors are so intense on the AS11 image it does look like they intensified them and probably did some other editing of the image.
This makes the third time I know of that NASA pulled and replaced images that people were discussing online.
