Predictably, this month's collection of Your Best Shot contest entries has a decidedly fall feel. Clicking through the submissions, I could swear I got a whiff of pumpkin spice coming through my monitor. It's not all pumpkins and foliage, though. This month's collection includes some fantastic stylized portraits, some epic landscapes, and even a few action shots to keep things lively.

Head over to our contests page to see all the chances you have to win this month.

Dandelion growing in a horseshoe (game) pit. I shot this with a long lens to blur the background. The fast shutter and subsequent high ISO was to compensate for a hand-held shot with a 270mm focal length.Ari Siegler
