Small world image contest

Nikon has been running a contest since 1973 for images captured from microscopes. Here is a gallery of this past year's winners along with a few particularly striking ones from previous years. Technically cool and artistic as well. Enjoy!

Very cool indeed. I really like the Velcro entry 'http://www.nikonsmallworld.com/images/gallery2005/fourbythree/4831_velcro-entry-1.jpg'


I've seen some very cool forensic microscopy pictures (fractured coils of light bulb filaments, fibres, etc) Those guys should participate!
