My gravatar was made with the following Mathematica code:

Graphics3D[{
  GrayLevel[.3], Specularity[White, 15],
  Lighting -> {{"Directional", 
     RGBColor[.3, .3, .4], {{5, 5, 10}, {5, 5, 0}}},
    {"Point", Black, {12, 3, 15}},  
    {"Point", White, {12, 3, 4}}},
  KnotData[{"TorusKnot", {2, 5}}, "ImageData"]}, 
 ViewVector -> {{0, 0, 5}, {0, 0, 0}}, Boxed -> False, 
 Background -> None, Axes -> False, ImageSize -> 1000]

"one or the other" - I can't see why you can't do both. Explore the language interactively, and write specific packages using Vim (or whatever) or run things from the command line once you've got it. You may find that looking at the same thing from two different directions enhances understanding. (The steepness of the learning curve may be due to the language itself, rather than to the method you employ.)

comment Metric Parameters such as Pratt Figure of Merit (Pratt-FOM) for Edge Detection
Because you've said this is a homework problem, people here would prefer to help you solve the problem yourself, rather than give you the answer. But you'll have to start the ball rolling by showing how far you've got.
