It looks like its winking lol!! But , cool in all aspects non-the less !

That's one of the reasons I like those GIFs, sometimes some things appear only on one of the photos, most likely meaning that they are just some noise and not something on the photographed scene.

My last panorama was this one, from Sol 647, that I just uploaded to GigaPan.

Edited to add a link to the white balanced version of the above panorama.


Another great Panorama !
I could spend hours going over that one....

Panoramas give us a different look of the area, the closest we can get to being there.


Here's one small panorama (too small for GigaPan) from Sol 658.

And the white balanced version.

Great composite. Nice work. Does it seem to you that almost all the big rocks have been eroded more to the left (in the picture's perspective) and seem to be "leaning over" to the right? If so, what would cause this? Did water flow in such a way as to create this erosion? Just an observation while passing through the martian landscape you've imaged.

Isn't it just the bedding plane of the rocks? I'm not sure what type of rock this is exactly but it looks like there is a definite angled plane in evidence there.

dropping up an experiment in detail and shape enhancemen

from this downsampled image from mast 663

mast 663





resampled resized , and recolored



when it/if it downloads ill drop up a side by side to see how terrible it compares
could be an interesting rock .. Nasa seems to have taken an interest


obviously not prioritised though

If and when the full resolution image becomes available, the comparison should be a nice illustration of the artefacts that are introduced when enlarging low-res pictures

care to point out the artefact in the picture I produced? just for later comparison purposes of course

Well we won't know what is and isn't an artefact until we can compare!

(I didn't mean artefact as in a specific object, just the effects of enlargement etc)

the small picture is there for you to make the comparison, you did say introduced from resizing did you? ide hate to make your word all broken


broken mouth words


but yes , no need for further pictures to ascertain what was introduced in my meddling.. you may find it difficult though , I used quite a few different blurring techniques , even artefacts that were there have been averaged away so to say


only definite lines and differences between light and dark are left, well that and a few blocks of colour patterning, although these aren't evident enough to make a misrepresentation of say , a spaceship or a bottle nosed dolphin for example


feel free to point them out though

I noticed that. To me, it looks like the ground was broken and the pieces got lifted on one side, more like an earthquake than normal erosion. Also, the rocks don't look as eroded as the ones we have seen so far, so it must have been something relatively recent.

I don't see any of these spoked rainbow patterns in the original picture. Certainly, that is something added to the mix by the process:


Overall, however, it's not so much that new information is added, but that no new detail is shown. If a four-pixel shadow is expanded to 128 pixels, it's still just the same information, only bigger.

Nice clump of mud, though. If I was there with a hammer, that would be a good one to break open.

I think you over saturated a little there , I didn't realise the colour blocking was so intense until your gif highlighted it


but ill add yours to the fray, you never know , when the full size comes down it could have a huge cut crystal somewhere on it . refracting a multitude of colours all over the edge of the rock


doubtful, but noted

even without the false color blocking I think it still has a fair bit of color to it

ill guess we have to wait an see

I just copied yours and bumped up the contrast.

if I had the time at the moment I would reverse engineer your gif, unfortunately not to be
but ill get back to you ,, on first glance yours looks a little smaller /reduced

Reverse engineer the GIF? Only if you're a magician, how would you get the original colours from the 256 colours palette that GIF uses?

yes , to see how it was achieved , like they do in industrial espionage @D

well apart from it being slightly smaller, all the difference is is the way Blueshifts highlighted the color blocking that was created. see my re engineered comparative gif



but then I was trying to minimise artefact , I could quite have easily de- saturated, but that would hide the blocking and some might see a small Bavarian cheese seller or something


the reason I increased the size in the first place was to make it easier to to see if any more details can be discerned, o and for comparison to the higher resolution

Here's a little something. Faint. Like the impression of a seaweed leaf.
