WOW! looking at the flecks of glass around the top of the lens it looks as if you rally took the drill to it (rather than staging it like I'd probably have done). Am loving the title. My only nitpic would be that you should have bought a new drill bit. One of the few shots that I would say meets the challenge 100% - good luck!

I actually winced a little when I saw this. Nice idea, and technically well done.

Nice (and creeping) idea! I would prefer to explore it more and give some motion to the drill...

Wow - ow, that almost makes me hurt looking at it - that poor lens! I love your choice of title - it adds a lot of humor to it!
