Hi Ian
You ask if this works as a montage, well for me a montage tells a story and this set of images does in my opinion tell a story, but I would have liked the time frame between the shots to be longer to allow for more of the demolition to happen.

I also like the single shots as a documentary of the street action as the demolition progresses.

From a critique view point I think your shots are taken at too similar angles,Try moving around more and shooting the scene from a variety of viewing angles to add a further element to the montage. I would also suggest perhaps trying just specific parts of the single images rather than using the whole shot each time.

On a previous montage loaded by a member it was suggested that the images be moved out of the regimented straight line and again this could be something you consider as a way to vary this shot.

Hope this helps you Ian, let me know.

All have a degree of interest, but v1 and 2 both show the white surrounds to figures etc. That your technique often shows. It is rather distracting here, Ian. I find myself looking round the areas of glow rather than at the scene. Whatever you are doing, you are overdoing it a bit.

V3 is a more normal mono image. There is a lot going on but the general effect is quite interesting. Possibly a little dark overall.

I like these. Very much in your style, when looking at the thumbnail I knew it was your post. Yes, good suggestions above and I must repeat Paul's point, your people still have that glow, probably caused by too much ironbru.
Are the halos/glows as apparent in your larger images before resizing, I've found over sharpening resized images can make them a lot more obvious.
