The local snowmobile clubhouse came down recently, so I got many shots of this high hoe tearing the place down and crunching stuff up before it was dumped in the dumpster. Thanks Eddie Como for your cooperation!

Woohoo, an HM to add to my collection! Yes, I also love the blasť expression on Eddie's face...he does demolition for a living so he is kinda used to it :-) I was impressed by how carefully the clubhouse was taken down. A section of wall would be pulled down, inwards, then the debris crunched up and dumped in the bin. There were very few pieces of debris outside the original footprint of the building, and none at all of course once it was all done.

Great shot of the destructive action ... and of the indifference of the driver. Congrats on 4th.

Hello from the critique club

A great image that contributes to the challenge well

A most appropriate choice for the challenge Susan. I like your mono presentation, the composition is perfect but what completes it is the concentrated but featureless expression of the driver, it works well. Your timing is good too, capturing the destruction as the bucket 'bites' into the debris. Congratulations on your placing and score, well done
