I wonder if there is a way to quantify the uncanny valley from "our" side using skilled Photoshopers and randomized testing.  When is it too much change and what kinds of change have more or less perceptive impact. I suspect that a lot of the uncanny valley problem comes from motion cues which this wouldn't address,  but it would be a way to evaluate CG as well as photo retouching.

It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.

MLK, 1968.  Not today, 1968.

NASA/JPL Photo Reveals A Perfect Sphere On Mars
Case File Overview
Recently, NASA/JPL posted a photo from the Martian surface. You can clearly see the lander, the ground, rocks, and dust.  However, one object that appears on the ground, is a perfectly shaped sphere. Even the shadow it casts supports in shape.
NASA Caption: This image was taken by Mastcam: Left (MAST_LEFT) onboard NASA's Mars rover Curiosity on Sol 746 (2014-09-11 14:46:57 UTC). 
What are we looking at?:  In this photo of the Martian surface, there appears to be a rock in the perfect shape of a sphere.
