Smoothing the finer spatial image structures out with increase of Gaussian kernel size: original image with structure sizes sigma = 2; 10; 40 (a). Convolution with Gaussian using various kernel size sigma = 2 (b), 10 (c), 40 (d). With Gaussian kernel size increasing, finer image structures are disappearing.
