The Fourteenth Heat Transfer Photogallery was sponsored by the K-22 Heat Transfer Visualization Committee for the 2009 International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exhibition (IMECE) held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, on November 13–19, 2009. The peer-reviewed evaluation for the seven presented entries identified the four entries for publication in the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer August issue of 2010.

The purpose of publishing these entries is to draw attention to the innovative features of optical diagnostic techniques and aesthetic qualities of thermal processes. To focus on visualization images and schematics, the text is kept to a minimum and further details should be found directly from the authors. My wish is that the journal readers enjoy viewing these collections, acquire knowledge of the state-of-the-art features, and also promote their participation in the 2010-IMECE Photogallery to be held in Vancouver, Canada on November 12–18 [].

The Call for Photogallery for 2010-IMECE is also announced in this issue of Journal of Heat Transfer.
