    She Blinded Me With Science!

    Since this is technically a science forum, this week's photo contest must have the main subject related to science. This includes anything that is clearly related to physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a grey area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Zz.

    I would consider that to be part of physical science, so it qualifies. However, the picture must really be explicit that it has something to do with earth science, such as pictures of various strata, etc... i.e. it simply cannot be a nice, scenic picture of some location.

    OK, here's mine.

    This is our control panel where control everything in our accelerator beam line while running. As you can see, neatness often doesn't count, even though I try.

    When I first learned on how to run the system, the big red button was the first thing that was pointed out. :)

    If it weren't for the road and the sky, one could easily mistake that for Jupiter's cloud belts!

    OK, this was a tough photo, these are ice crystals which formed on the inside of a lid in our freezer.

    Er... hum.. I'm guessing this is a screen capture? If it is, then it doesn't really qualify as a photo in the traditional sense, which I think is the spirit of this contest.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't qualify. It has to be a photo that has a clear main subject on science. No mathematics (that may have a photo contest all to itself later).

    You may replace your picture with something else, or I will have to delete it before I do the polling thread.

    Gees, I would think you could at least use a secret abort code, or a retinal scan, or voice recognition - something a little more glamorous than an industrial grade E-Stop.

    You guys have no imagination! :biggrin:

    Apparently, we also don't have any interior design ability either, judging from layout of our control panel.
