Typepad Import Image

Putting your photos under the microscope to search for imperfections has new meaning after seeing the winners of this year’s Nikon’s Small World Contest. Wired.com has posted the winning images, along with a few of their favorites. Nikon has been holding this contest of “photomicrographs” since 1974 and this year had no less than 1,709 entries. The detail and colors of these images are amazing. (Above: the 1st place winner, a mouse embryo)
