    Hey guys, a quick bonus assignment with a short deadline and sweet prize for those who are looking for a little extra something to take pictures of!

    So this is a time when it’s advantages to have a weeds in your garden. 🙂

    I didn’t know if they wanted to have a picture of just weeds. Or to illustrate “choking out growth” you needed a subject that was being choked by weeds.

    Haha, that’s great. 😀 That last one has a great emphasis on the surrounding growth, and the growth looking more obviously like weeds. Overall, great lighting and great framing! Never seen such artistic pictures of a weed-filled garden. 🙂

    Finally! The rain stopped this morning and I was able to get outside and photograph our garden’s precise example of “good growth getting choked out”!

    We have this one butternut squash that grew through the chicken wire fence around the garden. When the squash was young and small, it fit through the wire just fine, but as it grew, the fence choked it and it was stuck there….all further growth restricted by the wire around its throat. It was left alone: now pretty much good for nothing…except getting its picture taken! 😉

    I went around our farm and garden to find weeds, and this is what I found.

    Sometimes, while taking these pictures the turnips seemed too plump for being choked out.

    We planted a cover crop in our garden… but there was a lone pepper plant in there yet, totally surrounded by the ‘weeds.’

    Getting back from the FEW Conference last weekend . . . delighted to see so many submissions had come in!

    Hilarious, @bennett-family! Literally, “choked” 😀

    Not exactly the best time of year for weeds here in the northern hemesphere, but glad you were finding things Esther and @martha-lapp.

    For once, an assignment that @creative-click-photography has an advantage on! 😀

    This was fun, guys! We’ll see what the publishers think. 🙂 Will plan to critique these photos in the next webinar (Nov 24) https://www.lenspiration.com/webinar/photo-critique-59/

    As you can see in the replay (http://www.lenspiration.com/webinar59), the winner has not yet been chosen! We shall continue to wait and see what happens. 🙂

    PS. In correction to what I said in the webinar, the next photo assignment will actually be launched on December 4.

    Well folks, I am the bearer of bad news today. 🙁 Esther said the curriculum team ultimately decided to “go with a different type of picture this time instead of one of these.” She was very sorry. I suppose we can’t really know about these bonus assignment sometimes! Thank you for all the effort you put into shooting them anyway.
