This view from NASA's Dawn spacecraft shows a section of Jarimba Crater on Ceres. A portion of the crater rim near top center appears much sharper, with smoother walls, than elsewhere.
The image is centered at approximately 24 degrees south latitude, 22 degrees east longitude. Jarimba is 43 miles (69 kilometers) in diameter.
