Challenge has finished
With the second challenge in the Engineering Series we turn our attention to the circuit board. These little cities of resistors, capacitors, transistors and various other surface components can be found virtually anywhere you can find electronics. Many different materials with their own properties are littered across these boards, with a great deal of variation in depth/dimensions. Be creative with your lighting (be it sunlight or controlled indoor lighting). There is no excuse for a boring photograph!

This picture is an detail of a siliconwafer where 76 integrated cirquits where placed. This picture shows one complete IC. I took this picture by placing an old binocular lens in front of my panasonic FZ15 to get enough magnification of the subject. You can see something of the internal structure of the IC. The colours were created by reflections of an lamp on the silicone crystals. A kind of rainbow effect. It felt like flying over a city with an earoplane!
