Small Worlds

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Nikon International Small World Photomicrography Competition recently announced its list of winners for 2010. The competition began in 1974 as a means to recognize and applaud the efforts of those involved with photography through the light microscope. Peering into the small worlds of animal, plants and minerals using many techniques and different instruments, this year's entries brought us images of crystalline formations, fluorescent body parts, cellular structures and more, valuable for both their beauty and insight. Be sure to click the links at the end of the show to see all the winners. Enjoy. Small Worlds 11/2010 Click to advance
