The judges were unanimous in selecting this image, that we thought really fulfilled the brief of the competition. What we thought was amazing about this was that it doesn't look like a photo, but a medical, microscopic, or material image... and so through viewing this image the perspective of the viewer is transformed, aided by its description which leads us to reinterpret it. It also articulates its research subject well, and is an amazing example of how technology is advancing our research, while at the same time depicting a timeless image of a landscape and animals.
