So when these scientists say to you 'We tracked the landing of the MSL' you think that is "nothing"? I think you've totally discredited yourself.

My issue is with the photos, not the landing, or the rover, or how much PSI is in the tires etc... All I care for is some proof that what I'm being shown really was taken on Mars and not in the southwest United States.

Why not just look at other images and see if the spots are in the same part of the frame?
Oh. They are. What does that tell you?
BTW, the links have been fixed as expected. The "missing" images are again available.

Nice work on the pan!
I hope you don't find this off topic, but having spent a lot of time and effort with these images, I wondered what your take is on the color balance provided in the NASA originals?
On previous rover missions, the rovers had a USA flag which could be used for color balance, but usually looked purple in the NASA images. Some claimed that if the color balance were corrected so that the flag showed its natural red, white and blue, then the sky would turn blue and the landscape showed green or blue (moss?) on the rocks. Hidden Colors of Mars
I'm not saying that's true, far from it, but I didn't see a photo with the USA flag on Curiosity (which I find curious) and the the rover in your pan looks more gray with muted colors (such as the red and yellow cables wires) than the bright white and colorfully cabled rover in the pre-flight images shown at this link: Curiosity Pre-Launch Images.
Obviously the pre-flight images are taken under different conditions than those on the Martian surface, but I wondered what you think of the color balance in the images used to build your pan?
