Those are some amazing pictures! I got up close to the screen just to see the smaller details.

This is probably the best Viking view of Mars' polar caps (north or south) that I have ever seen. Great work.

Good grief... *another* image that deserves to be in textbooks for years and years to come...

Absolutely perfect! (and please, if anyone's thinking "Hmmm, I'll just tweak that a bit more...", don't; it would be like messing about with a painting, it's fine just how it is. smile.gif )

I think (actually I know), that another beautiful raw images are still waiting for processing. I tried choose only very nice images from Viking Orbiters and after all I have around one
thousand favourite images!

Absolutely, but it's up to you to change it, seeing as you made it, not anyone else smile.gif

Adding my voice to the choir -- Very nice work indeed. Splendid revival of spectacular images from decades-past!

I don't really 'dig' Mars, as such, but that is yet another tremendous image Daniel. ohmy.gif

You also need to set up your own YouTube account, as a way of storing all of your tweened/morphed movies in one accessible location.

Very intriguing machi! I might recommend releasing a version that is sped up as well; it is a little difficult to see the motion with it being slowed down to almost real-time dynamics.
