The detection of fine feature from an image is often challenging. Generally, the smoothing filters used for the purpose are inadequate for such applications with the exception of bilateral and mean shift filter. A new smoothing filter termed Gaussian Maxima Filter(GMF), developed and presented here shows better performance in preserving fine features even for relatively large window size. This paper also presents necessary analysis along with experimental results obtained from GMF.
