I like the way you interpreted the challenge with the subject of the photograph rather than just the composition. The motion of the wheel plays nicely with the sharpness of the hands and background. All in all, very well done. The only detractions, and minor ones at that, are the bright reflections on the hands.

Back to comment: A very artisitic photograph. The colors are rich and the compostion tells the story. 9

I like the dual meaning here - the centered photo, centering of the clay. (My sister is a potter.)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Closer. Get down and dirty with the clay! I like the idea for centering, you took it out of what everyone would interpret it as and gave it another meaning while still obiding by the challenge to center you subject. The lighting is rather tungstenish. but very nice creativity.

Wonderful earth tones! The motion is perfection with excellent detail in the hands! Well done!

Excellent !!!

Nice contrast between the motion of the wheel and the sharpness of the hands. For this challenge I think this would have worked better with an overhead view.

this would have been much more appealing in b/w or sepia
