The novelty of a piece of research can be defined in many ways. It does not necessarily entail inventing a new method or technique. As per your description, you have done wide analysis of a well-known method. You can, therefore, highlight the novelty of the analysis. Try to find out if any similar analysis has been done before and if not, emphasize this. Explain how this analysis will be helpful to image processing and what it will add to the existing literature. To highlight the novelty of your study, you will need to do a thorough literature review and find out the uniqueness of your study. Disproving an existing idea also qualifies as novelty.
