What does soy sauce look like when it's underneath a microscope? Apparently like golden crystals. Yanping Wang from the Beijing Planetarium took this photo as part of the 46th annual Nikon Small World Competition.

"The judges, which included both journalists and scientists, spent an entire day slowly whittling the record 2,200 images down to the best," said Betsy Mason, who was one of the judges and who wrote a piece on the competition for Wired.

Wang's photo won 10th place and was taken using reflected and transmitted light.
