Intermission: engineering photo contest

These are gorgeous.

Of course, as our imaging techniques grow in ability, so do the number and quality of photo competitions devoted to using them. (I remember submitting a couple of photos when I was doing my Honours degree).

They include
Visions of Science and Photography (UK)

And, of course, National Geographic Nikon's 'Best Science Images'

Then there's Nikon's Small World competition (and brilliant website), dedicated to everything one can see with the use of a microscope.

And I have no doubt that there are legions of others. In fact, if anyone knows of any more, please post a comment about it - I might just start keeping a library of them...
