The world shot a lot of photos in 2014. In fact, trillions of photos came into being last year. But, we're not concerned with all of them. Rather, we concentrate on the outstanding and excellent photos created by our talented readers.
Despite its December time frame, this month's contest isn't packed with images of snow and ice. Instead, it runs the photographic gamut, including portraits, landscapes, nature shots, and even some great architectural detail shots.
Check out the full gallery, then head over to our Contests Page for a chance to show off your work and win great prizes. The winners even get published in the pages of Popular Photography.
