The Yellow Monster, as I call this front-end loader living across the road from me. I've watched him and his owner, Jon, shove down trees and scoop masses of snow with the bucket he has on. I shot from between the bucket and the main body.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that contributes to the challenge

I like your chosen viewpoint and the use of the wide angle lens to emphasise the immense power of the working end of the machine. The viewpoint and the angle have enabled you to create something unique and quite powerful. There is some good detail of the metal that show its working scars and that this is a working ‘beast’. However, that same detail is not consistent throughout the image there is a definite imbalance between the sharper left and soft right but what also disturbs me are the linear striations of the shadow areas throughout, it somewhat resembles image noise but at your working ISO it quite clearly is not.

Normally, the tilt would drive me mad, but it's working here.
