The OP has refuted most criticism's here....
You only have to look at the size of the square surrounding the "white man" to see that this never ever can be a pack.
Speaking of square: explain the totally different colors inside the square in relation to the rest of the image!
All the other samples you present have absolutely nothing to do with the manipulation of this particular image.
....On a different note, please know that at the bottom of this massif, there is a colossal opening...... The landing crew of Schmitt and Cernan made a bee-line for it after they landed.

He used some bad ass software, AMS auto multi layer segmentation software, on these photos, and most of, if not all of us do not have access to such software.
Oh....how "convenient" for the OP.
Now then....who can tell us what kind of image manipulation software was available in 1969, 1970, 1971.....etc?
Surely, for any organization committed to *hiding evidence* from Apollo photos that date from the actual historical records and time-frame, they would have had to have very sophisticated computer processing abilities in the 1970s?? I seem to have miss that tidbit from the historical records of the era.
Imagine the immense *team* that wold need to be employed to do this, building a computer that didn't yet exist, writing software that was still a dream for Gates and Wozniak and Jobs.....et al.
Wow! What skilled and genius professionals, hiding all those skills for so many decades.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Let's see what happens if we use some cheap software on a digital image we can relate to. These are screenshots of the MS program that comes "free" with Windows 7. Note the sliders to the right, and the artifacts each of these changes make to the image:
If you bump the contrast and zoom in, you can make a word appear where there was none!
Another little tweak and the shadows take on a life of their own!
Zoom in on all this noise and you can create all sorts of imaginary things. But wait, this was a (public domain) digital image. What happens if you take a film image and scan it. This process creates its own artifacts. Here's a photograph of yours truly shortly after a face plant in some nice fresh snow:
The bright background causes some interesting problems when you adjust the contrast:
Does that halo look familiar? What about the inky blackness of space? What happens when you zoom in on it? (This is a digital photo taken with a Nikon D3000, 1/250 of a second, f/11)
Now let's zoom in:
The blue "atmosphere" is due to chromatic aberration. Refractor telescopes do that. But look at the space around it: SPACE MONSTERS!
