Every month, we ask our talented readers to share their best shot with us. You never fail to deliver. This is the biggest finalist gallery we've had yet, which speaks to the increasing quality of the work we're seeing. Check out the gallery, then get inspired and head over to our Contests page to throw your own shots into the ring.
