Wow, they are great. This is one with a bit of a stretch and cleanup.

Wow, looks like I'll be busy for a while...

Still sorting through the images myself.... This looks like a great image of Sparrow Lacus

Is any high-contrast spot safely assumed to be a lake?

At this latitude, I think that's a fairly safe assumption.

Recalling the south polar views from a few years back there is also the possibility of temporary dark patches resulting from recent rain.

(BTW does anybody know if recent lake imaging includes any shots through polarising filters? My sporadic searches have not turned up any.)

Nice mosaic and great overlay. There are some interesting differencences from the SAR view.

Here is an image from a few days earlier that I like because it shows almost the whole of Titan's northern lake province now in daylight. (It's one of many that are ripe for stacking and other clever stuff.) http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/imag...0/N00216700.jpg

There are no safe assumptions on Titan.

True, true: but I still think it's fairly safe to say the dark splodges are more likely to be fluid-related than anything else.
