Matt,

Where did you find the Venus image? You reference the Messenger mission but I could not find it there, though it may be there.

That looks as if it may be a natural color rendering as we would behold it. If so, it's the first time I've seen one, though Richard Nunez did produce something similar as a likely natural color. Your image shown is far better than the ubiquitous false-coloring images depicting its surface.
