One is a fragment of http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/all/2/p/005/2P126804143EDN0200P2217R7M1.HTML, right pancam shot of rocks near the lander.

The other is a fragment of a large mosaic, made of many individual pictures, cut, twisted, warped, and pasted to make a large image, http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA05102

Why should we expect them to be exactly the same?

Yawn.

Looks to me as if there's a seam in the middle of the color picture (where two photos were stuck together) that obliterates some of the detail. That's why the rock right in the center foreground looks to be missing its left half in the color image.

Well, if you're trying to create a nice panorama, it's hard to get everything lined up. Usually what's close in is sacrificed for what's closer to the horizon, which looks like what might have happened here.

Yep. It's funny that the 5 circled "anomalies" in the non-mosaic picture, all happen to lay on a straight line, and the 6th "anomaly", of distance between two rocks, crosses that line. Gee, I wonder why.

Sometimes I wish all the released NASA photos were overlayed with a neutral-density message, that in extremely tiny print says, "If you can read this you may be making a mountain out of a molehill," -- sort of like the line curving around the portrait of Jackson on the series 2001 US 20-dollar bill that when magnified says "THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" several times. Nah... then every released image would have to be a big high-resolution in order to maintain that text.
