What is the difference between the image on top and the one on the bottom?

The bottom one is a fake found on the internet.

The top image has been put through an orange filter.

Both images are the same.

The top one is the original image taken by the Venera lander.

    As the labels say, the top one is the original image and the bottom one is color-corrected.

    Original means unfiltered and it has that golden tone because that's how the sun's light appears on Venus (due to atmospheric conditions).

    The color corrected image isn't fake. It was made that way so that more people (those who just can't take their minds off the golden tone of the original) can appreciate the photo.

    One has been color corrected and the other has not.

    The top image, which YOU claim to be the original, has been loaded into an image-processing application/program and the colurs converted to greyscale, my friend. i.e. the colours changed to diifferent shades of grey.

    I find the black and white fake much clearer.
