Every month we ask our talented readers to show us their best recent work. Every month, we're impressed. July's contest saw an influx of excellent black-and-white images as well as a great selection of color photos. The final winners will be announced in an upcoming issue of Popular Photography, but here's a gallery of some of our favorites to help you get inspired. Each image is presented with the original title and caption provided by the photographer. Once you've been through the photos, head on over to our contest page to submit your own work. If you're feeling particularly confident, enter our year-end Readers' Contest, which is the stiffest competition lives.
