POTW 6-Dec-2016

A difficult pick this week as there were some excellent images to choose from. It boiled down to 2, The potter by zafra52, a fine study in B&W, and this dramatic cloud shot by Dave-D40. I chose this image because I loved the inclusion of the tree in the bottom left hand.....it seems to push back against the form of the off center cloud and place the balance of the image into a sweet spot. Without the tree the composition would have seemed left bottom heavy. And of course, the colours are spectacular. Well Done Dave!
