Daresbury Laboratory regional winner 2014

Daresbury Laboratory

A vacuum vessel with glass viewing port. Paul Worpole: "I noticed that everyone was trying to capture lots of information with wide angle lenses - but I could see with trailing wires and plug sockets everywhere that this could be a confusing image, for me the detail in the machines was far more interesting. Stunning quality stainless steel engineering was highlighted by the use of a macro lens with a very shallow depth of field (both in and out of focus) managed to show something that the human eye would not normally see!"
