i learned this "painting with light" concept from nico_blue's Peace entry. Thanks Nick.

basically, this can be done by writing the message with a small light in complete darkness and exposing the subject briefly with main light source.

i definitely wanted a sharp portrait with both of my hands visible in this position. as i did not have any assistant for this SP, it proved more challenging than i thought.

PP:crop, curves, saturation, resize, usm, and frame.

wish i had some professional model to pose for me in this photograph. hope this goes well with voters.

Having spent hours on experimenting painting with light, I thoroughly emphathize the efforts involved in getting this right. Great job.

interesting, i am not sure what virtue you are trying to convey but i like the painting with light. on a side note, i think a title of "ohm" would have stood just fine, like alot of people i find titles that try to explain the shot to you annoying /7
