Charles Krebs and Thomas Deerinck Take First and Second Place in Nikon's Small World Competition


Two West Coast photographers recently were honored by Nikon in the company's Small World competition, honoring excellence in photography through the microscope.

Charles B. Krebs, of Issaquah, Wash., was awarded first place for his photomicrograph of a common housefly. Second place went to Thomas Deerinck, of the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research at the University of California, San Diego, for his quantum-dot fluorescence image of a mouse's kidney section. Deerinck also received eighth place for his image of a mouse's small intestine.

The winning images can be seen on a national museum tour and in an electronic gallery, nikonsmallworld.com.
