I'm saddened by the most popular pictures sad.gif this is apparently what ' the public' finds really interesting: flippin' aliens! or do you think they would have seen it as the fun it was intended?

We should take it with a grain of salt.
The reason (IMO) for these ones to be so "popular" here was because there were links on other sites pointing directly to them.

There is just so much . . but I'd like to mention a few personal favourites. I'll describe them first, then add the links when I find them.

First mention goes to the endless cylindrical Homeplate pan by James Canvin/Andy G. This is a panorama presented as panoramas should be, and I'll never tire of plugging it. Unfortunately it is still the only one of it's kind as far as I know.

Now a couple of more overtly artistic contributions. A piece of impromptu collaboration by several members resulted in an APOD of Meridiani sands and clouds in October 06. But there was also a version with no gap in the sky by Astro0. I saved that one too.

We often overlook the fact that we have NO nighttime pictures of the Martian landscape - for obvious reasons. But 'being there' means being there at night too, so a special thanks to Stu for having a go with Victoria at night. I've chosen the one without the moons.

ED: Not having much luck getting a working link to that one. I've no idea which thread it was posted on but I'll keep looking.

I'll gladly join the chorus of "Aye" for Tesheiner's route maps.

I'm beginning to understand why I couldn't find the proper umsf location where Stu posted that image. Searching through his posts for October 06 I found that he posted it on the Duck Bay thread at 10:38 pm on Oct 11. Now when I go back to the Duck Bay thread I find that there are no posts after 26th September.

That's rather unusual - can you cite more details - i.e. post numbers, thread numbers etc?

Oooh, that's a tough one... I definitely bow down in a Wayne-esque "We're not worthy!" way before Tesh for his route maps, and Olivier's colourisations always make me shake my head with wonder, but I have to say that personally Astro0's SFX images have always made me sit back in my chair and let out a long breath, just because they always give me a "sense of scale" shot. Out of all his images, this one - actually a collaboration, looking at the footer - is my all time UMSF MER fave...

I must say I agree on most of what is said. Eduardo's route maps are a must, and I hope we'll have much more of these.
To a be bit different, I love self portraits, specialy Oppy's.
..and for sure the Everest pano. I agree regarding getting to a summit and discovering what lay on the other side. It's what Exploration is all about.

I think Ustrax and I both were carried away by the romance and mystery of this Inner Basin Portrait:

I always attributed it to Alan (I hope, correctly.) What a promise of adventure it offered us for the future, while we reveled in the achievement of the summit of Husband Hill!
What dazzling treasures awaited us down in that 'shadowed realm', just when some would assume Spirit's mission to Gusev was complete!
Just looking at that portrait made Mars into a New World, a Planet of Mystery, a home for the adventurous! rolleyes.gif

Shaka...can I hug you?! laugh.gif

That's the one...a whole new world ahead...who thought it would be possible?

This, and this, and maybe this also comes to mind...
And Doug...the El Dorado image I was talking about looks like it is actually yours...thanks!
