I've heard somewhere (think it may of been one of the BBC News website articles) that some of these panorama shots have been 're-coloured to colours that humans are more used to seeing'. What does that mean?
They've probably added more reds and browns than what is "really there." But I've also heard that the pictures we're getting here are "true color" ones as opposed to the "doctored" ones we've gotten in the past.
Yeah they have basically been saying that the colored ones were some of the very first images but now the color is what the camera sees. It shouldn't be much further off in color than a picture from your phone.
