Mars Curiosity Color Photo

The first color photo from the Mars Curiosity rover was released. Many will be disappointed by the quality. Here it is above, notice the black area as the position of the camera hasn’t been fully deployed yet. Click the image above to see the full size image.

Now, there is no reason to wait for NASA to correct the image, I’ve done so below. Wow! You can see a lot more detail when the image is corrected. The color is approximate. My color correcting revisions are below as well so you can see the progression, click to view larger images.

This is my final draft of the first Mars Curiosity color photo.
