As the Bad Astronomer pointed out on Tweeter yesterday, besides the beautiful gravitational lensing we see here, maybe the most interesting things are those ruby-red spots throughout the images. If the processing just shifted the wavelengths into the visible (which I imagine is exactly what it did), then these are some of the most red-shifted objects in the image, so really really far out (man).
