Blimey! You guys are killing it over in the Facebook User Groups for Exposure and Snap Art. I went through and selected my faves like I usually do and ended up with over two dozen images. That's a pretty bumper crop! I think I need to go and lie down to recover. Check out the picks of the pics for this week.

Well, my calendar tells me it's Good Friday, but from the looks of the standard of work in our Exposure and Snap Art Facebook user groups this past week it's definitely a Fab Friday for our blog. So butter yourself a Hot Cross Bun and get stuck into the pick of the pics from the last seven days.

Well, I don't know about you but spring has sprung and I'm definitely looking forward to warmer weather and longer evenings to go out and shoot in. We saw out the winter this week with the theme of "Shadows" in the Exposure User Group with a few remnants of the previous week's "Daylight" coming in over the weekend. I'm thinking of running with the imaginative theme of "Spring" for next week. What do you guys reckon?I've looked back over the week's photos and have made the following selections. There were a LOT of photos of pretty women to look through, which is always nice, but there are only so many I feel I can choose, which makes selecting my faves very tough. If you want to increase your chances of standing out and being featured, I would recommend maybe shooting something different or maybe trying to bring something unique with your composition or point of view. I see a lot of the same people submitting the same types of images over and over, which is great for consistency, but we may want to challenge ourselves to diversify a bit. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

TGIF! The weekend is just around the corner, which means 2 things: it's time to start winding down and it's time to look back over some favourite submissions from our Facebook User Groups for Exposure and Snap Art.
