That's a boatload. Lots of that seems to be photo and pixel artifacts. I like the snake though. Will look them over again.

where did he go ?

I think it's in the same place, marked here in red.

Much better to zoom towards the coordinates on your own equipment and view.
A lot is lost in visual translation to get these post-worthy.
I need a serious upgrade in my graphics software and capabilities...

Hi Aleister,
Go to the source data a and view... no pixel artifacts there... just looks bad on my blow-up crud...

did this one already get highlighted ?, from the area next to Blueshifts clam



is that loop connecting the gap in rock? is that the shadow *merged* to the left?

funBOx


Looks like a watermelon. Can't tell if that's a loop or part of the rock, but it's worth a look and a measurement for first down.

Very possibly, you either may have found the culprit or on the first pic the rock you point to is behind the image. That gives a likely explanation though, and a slower look will either nail it down or nail it up.

Ah, will look. Check is in the mail (coming over on a slow boat from China). Thanks, this should go a long way in giving this rock the bums rush.

The image below is a good example of how the JPEG artefacts interfere with the image.



We can see "columns" created by the JPEG compression, all with the same width (at 100% zoom, if there's a square or a column with a width multiple of 8 then it's most like a JPEG artefact), we can see that, in some areas, those columns are made of thinner (1 pixel in the original?) columns, almost all with the same width and we can also see changes in colour (JPEG compression changes the colours to make it easier for us to see things while using a high compression).

Working with images that small with such a high compression is a waste of time, you are analysing the way JPEG compression works more than what's on Mars.

great example Armap, you can see them quite clearly on most of the images, quite east to identify really, when you've seen enough of them that is

is therw any chance you can isolate them from the image? I want to see if you're seeing what I consider jpg artifacts

Admittedly, my blow up shots are anemic, the archway still shows clearly in a wider angle view... is it an archway? Thanks

In red, the "columns" made up of several 8 x 8 pixel blocks.
In yellow, the areas with colours that are different from the surrounding areas.
In blue, the areas that show "stripes" that may have been created by the JPEG compression to give and idea of an intermediate colour.



As you can see, there are areas that I don't know if they are JPEG artefacts or really what was on the photo, and that's the biggest problem with these artefacts. Also, the changes in colour are a little more unpredictable, as the JPEG algorithm changes the colours to help us see the colours it replaced or to see better colour transitions, that's why a checkers board with too much JPEG compression shows green and magenta lines between the black and white squares to makes us see a smoother transition.
In some cases we cannot really know if the colours were in the original or not. The only obvious thing are the 8 x 8 square blocks, but even that gets blurred with the zooming.

I hope that helps.

Wow! I finally found the bottle I tossed into the Pacific 40 years ago. I have heard of Rogue Waves before, I just didn't know how high they were.

Or, it's just another rock.
