|Rod, I gave this shot a 9. I was both impressed by the photo and work behind it, very valuable. I hope you do find a cure and get a huge medal for it! (Would this put you in the running for a Nobel?) I like the transparency in front, places the chemical compounds on the microscope. Very creative and ties the two together nicely. The syringe in front might be a little "over the top", but does add a good opposing color releif, so it does have it's benefits.
Sorry I didn't comment this during the challenge week. I try to comment from the bottom up (this is a learning site, right?), so it's often a Martha Stewart "good thing" to not get a comment from me!
