2010 Underwater Photography Contest Winners Announced

28.05.2010
In its sixth annual Underwater Photography Contest, the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science attracted a diverse array of national and international photographic talent representing more than 20 countries and nearly 600 images which competed in three categories: “wide angle,” “macro,” and “fish or marine animal portrait.” Recognition was also given to the best among University of Miami student entries.

Winning images were chosen via anonymous judging by a panel of experts in underwater photography and fine arts, including underwater photographers Myron and Nicole Wang and Rosenstiel School Marine Biology & Fisheries Professor Dr. Michael Schmale. The competition is open to all amateur photographers who earn no more than 20 percent of their income from their photography.


Awards included a weeklong trip with Blackbeard’s Cruises and cash prizes. Images of all the winning photos are available at http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/support/advancement/uw-2010/w.html

The Best Overall was an image submitted by Luc Rooman of Kieldrecht, Belgium. The photograph depicts a rare, vivid image of two mating cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) photographed off the coast of The Netherlands.

Im Focus: Disrupting crystalline order to restore superfluidity

When we put water in a freezer, water molecules crystallize and form ice. This change from one phase of matter to another is called a phase transition. While this transition, and countless others that occur in nature, typically takes place at the same fixed conditions, such as the freezing point, one can ask how it can be influenced in a controlled way.

We are all familiar with such control of the freezing transition, as it is an essential ingredient in the art of making a sorbet or a slushy. To make a cold...
