Well, seems the resolution of the original pic is worst than the image on google mars (strange). I downloaded all the formats and still cant see a thing.
That's funny, I have seen hundreds (or maybe even thousands) of photos in these last seven years, and for all the "airbrushed" (or otherwise altered) photos that I have seen, I have also seen the unaltered images, that are also, usually, higher resolution versions of the altered images.

JPL apparently likes to air brush over what they dont want the public to see.
The photos only look "pixilated" when zoom too much ot when they have an exaggerated contrast, like some photos from Google Mars/Moon, the original images are usually good or very good.
Thats the one thing i dont get, all these sophisticated probes and satellites we have and all we can get is pixilated fluff with alot of airbrushed features. It seems kind of shady to me.
