In its second annual photo contest, C&EN asked scientists to send in photos of beautiful things that showed up on their lab benches. They submitted stunning images of crystals, snapshots of chromatography chambers, colorized electron microscope images, and much more. Winners were selected based solely on the strength of the image. Shown here are the top-rated contributions.

I can see only one image, and clicking the arrow to see others yields zero results -- I know you'll fix it!

Anne, which browser are you using? Does clicking on the image itself (not the play icon) bring up the slideshow? We'll definitely fix it!

Clicking on the iamge brings up the slides but the labels are superimposed on the images and difficult or impossible to read, especially those on a dark background.

I would echo the comments about the play icon NOT bringing up the slideshow.
I'm using a Firefox browser.
Love the pictures, but the legends are difficult to read when super'd over the images.
