Greetings, everyone. Welcome to Friday–the best darn day of the week. Unless you work weekends, of course, then Fridays are just a tease.

Regardless of your plans for the weekend, let’s take a few minutes and look through some inspiring work from the Alien Skin Flickr group and from the Exposure and Snap Art user groups on Facebook.

The images chosen in this article have earned their respective owners a shot (pun intended) in the next Photo of the Quarter competition. It’s easy to enter. Go to the Alien Skin Flickr group pool, or the Exposure and Snap Art Facebook groups and share your best work with us. We’ll be giving away another prize of around $2,300 in value.
