It’s a Small World After All, Reminds Nikon

(Shirley Owens).jpgThere are no small photos, only photos taken of really small things with the help of a microscope. That’s the message of Nikon’s annual Small World Photomicrography Competition, now in its 34th year and a leading showcase for photomicrographers from an array of scientific disciplines (and anyone with some spare time and access to a microscope). The winners of this year’s competition will be announced October 15, but the sharp-eyed Nikon judges have narrowed down the top entries for online People’s Choice Award voting through October 10. All 20 of the featured entries are hovering between a rating of two to three on a scale of one through five, so this could be a close one. But we know which one would get Dame Edna‘s vote; the image above was taken by Dr. Shirley Owens, and while it may look like a trio of SimCity watermelons, it’s actually blobs of gladiola pollen under a fluorescent microscope at 2500x magnification.
