I'll confess to being TOTALLY shocked at the results and harsh voting on this challenge.

In my view accidental letters are whole, discovered and not necessarily a perfect, oh-so-obvious representation of letterform.

Sometimes things aren't immediately obvious and, for me, that's the charm of this challenge, although I saw little charm in it apart from some letters created by cropped man-made forms.

Thanks particularly to those who saw the word (was it really that hard?!) and for the comments.

Very harshly treated, in my opinion.

Great lighting and detail.

Okay, please forgive me, but I'm not seeing a "letter" here at all. I've looked at this one several times, backed away from the monitor, and looked at it from different angles. The best I can do is an upside down lower case 'q'. This, however is one of the very best images, quality-wise in the challenge, with great lighting, marvelous detail ( a little loss in the center white area, but that could be my monitor), and an interesting composition, which most of the other images lack. I know there has to be a letter in there somewhere, so giving you that benefit of the doubt, and based on the quality of the photo, I'm giving it my praises. <9>

OK, I've looked for a while.....is it the, rather fat, "b" that I'm supposed to be seeing?

I tried hard but I can't see a word. I can see an i and a b. Nice photo though.
