The images were rendered without a Jupiter shape model. They are decompanded and only very roughly radiometrically calibrated, square-root-encoded, then roughly dark-subtracted and stretched in a linear fashion.

The immediate comparison of the hazes on both sides of the mean terminator helps to distinguish a little better mere shading or varying albedo within the high-altitude hazes from true shadows on the cloud-tops.
