It used to be that I could wait until the contest was over to start picking out images to include in this gallery. Now, we get so many entries that I need to keep tabs on what's coming in as it happens. We get so many incredible photos every month that narrowing them down has become a rather huge task and it's one that I greatly enjoy.
It wouldn't take as long if so many of the photos weren't just plain great. This month, there are quite a few impressive portraits, stunning landscapes, and even some excellent abstract images that go beyond the typical genre definitions.
Once you've made your way through the gallery, head over to our contest page for your own chance to submit your best work and show off your photos.
