Combined X-Ray and Optical Images of the Crab Nebula
That's very cool.
This is easy. My most favorite physics picture is my avatar, because it gave me my most cited paper to date.
It's an interesting avatar, Zz. But what is it - did you 'splain it somewhere on PF?
Yeh, I'd love to know. Is it in anyway related to a shift in frequency?
NOTE: Vague comment may just be somehow related to picture.

Have you seen this picture thread?
It is an actual dispersion curve of an overdoped high-Tc superconductor obtained directly from an angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. In the paper, there are 2 other similar curves for the underdoped and optimally-doped compound. The 3 of them together gave a very compelling evolution of the dispersion as one varies the doping value in this material. I have an "attachment" to the overdoped data because (i) I was the one who pushed for a study on this doping range that has been overlooked by people in the field because they thought it was a "conventional" superconductor (it isn't), (ii) I actually made the measurement and (iii) it was my initiative that found us the overdoped material.
I think, to this date, for this Bi2212 material, it is still the most highly overdoped sample ever studied (Tc~51 K). So even almost 8 years after it was published, we still hold that "record" :)
Hubble Ultra Deep Field will I think be my favorite for a LONG time, at least until they get a better one.
gotta agree with pooploops. I love that picture.
