Photo of the month competition - instructions on how to vote for your favourite photo

The theme of the December Photo Competition "Beauty"  was chosen by Hamburger, the winner of the October competition. 

Each member has 3 votes (but please do not vote for your own photo). Voting is open to all members regardless of whether or not you submitted a photo.  Please choose up to three photos you want to vote for, note photo details, then tick the relevant boxes on the voting poll.

To make it easier for you we have posted the photos below but you can also view the photos submitted by members in the Gallery.   You will probably get a better view of the photos in the Gallery where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form and you can then click on the pictures shown, and click again, to see them in large size.

Click on the Gallery button from the forum or click on this link:
https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=109

You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 March 2014   The winner will be announced on 1 March 2014 to allow for other time zones to catch up with the voting deadline.

The poll is ready for you to cast your vote for the January competition "Beauty" and the choice is the most difficult yet. 

When I just think I have selected my three favourites, I see another one that I think should get my vote. 

To quote the words of Andy Murray (when he had to make a speech after loosing the Wimbledon final to Federer) "This isn't going to be easy but I will try"

Hope you enjoy looking at all the photos and making your selection for your 3 favourite photos.  Remember you can also view the photos in the Gallery album.

What a tough choice, so many lovely pictures it was hard to narrow it down to just three. Anyway, my votes are in.

I just voted, and my, what a difficult time choosing !  Every single photograph of our beautiful, beloved QE2 was absolutely stunning !  She is indeed the most beautiful ship ever built, and I can not even imagine that a more beautiful ship will ever be built !
