Thanks for the votes everyone :) For those that are interested in how this was done, it was a shot that was taken with a 15 second exposure taken in three stages using my Nokia 8250. First stage was with me standing outside the shot totally just putting my hand in to write the B with the phone facing the camera. To get to the second stage I covered the phone with my hand and positioned it, then write the 'lue'. Then for the final stage, the pic of me holding the 'light', I covered the phone again and had a marker on the ground where I rested my back on the wall, positioned the phone roughly where I thought the 'B' would start and faced the phone AWAY from the camera, illuminating the wall as well. It took about 120 shots!!!

Simple and beautiful. I would have had the person standing at the other end, as if his hand wrote this word, finishing with the E. 9

Neat :) I wanna know how you did this one. I like how your face is framed in the bottom of the B

This is well done. Love the way you have picked up the person in the background, really gives the photo some impact. Should do fairly well in this challenge for both originality and impact. Good Luck, Todd.

Conceptually one of the best pics I've seen the last 2 weeks. The only thing I'd change about it is make the blue background take up a little more of the frame. But I really like this one -9

Excellent job. I especially like the slight cast of light on the person (you?)

This is very cool... and was it done on the B setting? <GRIN> I like it a lot... one of three 10's for the challenge. Good luck!

I'm wondering how many times it took to get this right. Nicely done.
