Jury comment: The picture of three coexisting textures of 8CB in the SmA phase is very aesthetic and as well as instructive. It show beautifully the diversity of different textures of the SmA phase. The composition is striking with different fields of colour with high visual contrasts and as a picture it looks very dynamic.
