Hello, and you came four minutes after I wrote that last sentence (not one I edited).

Char-Lee found a really interesting marsammal earlier, not too far back in the thread, and you'll know it when you see it. Seems like a good find, something you'd have to chase out of your garden or eaves.

Here's her tiny pic and first mention of it, people could almost miss it. www.abovetopsecret.com...

That's a strange thing to find on Mars (and a strange sentence to write). And look at the shadow. You make it look like something we'd be better off asking you to put it back where you found it. I think even Arken screamed and ran away when he saw it. Jack Hanna took one look and went off to have a drink.

I know it's a long way off and the zoom collapses a lot of the pixelartifact range, but still...

Rock. Or rocks. I don't know (on third).

quite right Aliester , I don't think this ones going in the can
, might spoil quicker


as for the explodes they expand just the pixel size , sometimes adding a light gaussian blur at low pixel dimensions can blur the jpg compression artifacts , without distorting the line and shadows of the rock/it/marsimal/machinery , in question, il drop up some images to show differences between smoothings of various types, a kinda gallery within a gallery


but not tonight, has been a long and crazy day
,

Let's talk about this one a bit. Even at this distance, the subtle but numerous and seemingly appropriate "splotches" of grey/black/white along this image seem unusual for a rock. Am I seeing those subtleties incorrectly?

The sun. It seems to me like the sun is almost at high noon, a little bit to one side of noon. There aren't many shadows next to the rocks in the entire picture. But look at the shadow structure under and along the thingit, and the shape of the shadow. How does that fit in with the rest of the shadows on the entire picture?

And within this rock are two points of highly reflective light, spaced like what we would call eyes but Martians call "rng3[qgh". Then what's up with the "leg", is it a separate rock or attached?

I dunno.

For it to cast such a long shadow it must have some height, and also the shadows from whatever shape the two ends are, curled and upright, seem to show a structure that is itself interesting.

Don't forget that a shadow's shape depends on two things: the shape of the object projecting the shadow and the shape of the surface where the object is projected.

I couldn't get layer one and two to fuse for some reason. I tried cut and past but that didn't work...I am hopeless, will mess with it again soon.

Even more interesting in this case. The rock that the shadow is falling along is right next to the object in question, and yet there still seems to be space between it and the rock, space enough to cast a shadow. So it's likely separate from the rock on the right. Anyway, this is an odd one, and why not have an odd one every couple of days or so.

It Does! Not calling this guy cute, but he looks furry. Think he is eyeballing Rover.

maybe its buried in the sand and that's its arm lifting itsself up
,it probably turn out to be even more bizarrely improbable when in color, but the shadows do seem disjointed, again its a bit far away to tell for certain , maybe some multiple angles of light will shed some light
still playing picture thread catchup

Going with the eyeballing for a moment, I'll switch to the point of view of it being a marsmmal. So obviously the sun is shining very brightly off of its right eye, reflecting a round sun. I don't see as bright a shine in the picture, at least on a quick look, an eyeball reflected brightness.

you don't need to, they will fuse when the jpg is saved, merging isn't really necessary with layers , its better they are independent from one another , you can easily move things around or change layout at anytime


regarding picture , did you not see the eraser head baby pic ? that's one baby sitting ide pass up on , I see mandibles under that domed head

Hi there,

Take a look at this photo, at 10 o'clock there is a huge stone and it seems like with some writing on it, on its top, no?
Pretty nice effect from the distance.

Oh, you are looking at it as a large head. My brain is looking at it as a soft fur head, not very far above the eyes. The part that is larger in back, to me, is either a rock, or it could be dragging a shell around (a fur thing in a shell - now that's an image, whoops, Jack Hanna just ran away again).

I have been trying it both ways, and trying not to be earthish about it. I want to see soft black fur little chin whiskers and bright intelligent eyes skinny leg but I am also taking a big bulbous head look, maybe even have the leg come from the face like feelers.

Looks like several rings and a big E.

Yo. The "writing" on top the rock just seems like sand/dust movement, and for Mars to have writing or numbers anywhere on it would have to mean humans had been there, drawing in dust, quite recently as dust movement goes. The larger rock a ways in front of it, the one that's cracked and you can see the inside looking much like a rock on earth would look if you cracked it with a hammer and split it in two - but this rock, where did the piece cracked off go?

And check out the long trail in the sand on the right-center. Dust devil trail?

What do you think of Char-Lee's nameless thing we're talking about off and on, the furry small/giant headed legged/mandibled damned thing?
