I find it interesting that (a) amateurs can actually achieve such fantastic results with their equipment nowadays (the costs are probably 'astronomical') and (b) that MARS on these pics looks so different and more 'alive', especially in terms of the coloring. But please don't think that I distrust NASA in general, it's just that they always seem to remove oceans, icy regions, forests, blue skies etc. ... you know: all that interesting stuff on Mars!!
Now I just hope I won't lose too much time searching for stuff in that image pool, but thanks for posting ... S+F!
