Every month we challenge our talented readers with a topic to photograph. June's topic was the elusive blue hour. The results, as always, were wonderful. Each image is a great reminder of how patience can truly pay off when you're behind the camera. The official winner will be announced in an upcoming issue of the magazine, but here's a gallery of some of our favorites to provide inspiration. Once you've made your way through the images, head over to our contest page and participate.
