The comparison with the image of only four days ago is already very interesting for the number of changes observed (see
Part of the excavated material has collapsed conspicuously, a little towards the inner hole and a little outside. Some “lumps” have crumbled, while others have changed position.
But the most curious aspect is the change of color, where everything seems to have been covered by a thin reddish layer, except some rocks that have taken a coloration definitely tending to green.
I want to emphasize that both this and the previous image were taken with the same camera, in very similar lighting conditions and have undergone the exact same processing with the same parameters!
Such noticeable chromatic variations are certainly noteworthy, although I doubt that other “popularizers” will deign to talk about it. 3:)
The original image is a black and white encoding of the Bayer mask that has been converted to color through a process called “debayering” or “demosaicing”. In addition, the photo has undergone noise reduction due to Jpeg compression, white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast and color saturation in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
