2019 Calendar: Photo competition results
« on: Oct 03, 2017, 09:19 AM »
"QE2 Unique" is the first theme for the 2019 Calendar and what a fantastic range of photos that were submitted. 

Your winner is Hamburger's photo of QE2 doing what she was built for and what she did best "QE2 Cutting through the waves"



and it was another photo submitted by Hamburger "QE2 Beauty in the Dawn" that you choose as the runner up



A special mention is deserved for runners up in third place:

Davina's photo: "QE2 at Sea"


Cunarder Man's "My last turn on the Mersey"


A very fitting theme for September the month that we celebrated QE2s 50 years since her launch.

Thank-you to everyone who participated

Fabulous photos, and well deserved winners. What a great collection to start off our 2019 (yes, already!) calendar!

The 2018 calendar is now available for sale, here :

Just click into the link alongside each version of the calendar, which will get you to the page where you can order them. I love the fact that, with the calendar, we can give a printed "home" to these wonderful prizewinning pictures.

As we say in parts of Scotland "oh here!"

Cracking calendar once again which has two of my fave photos - "that bow shot" and that excellent shot of John Little's that I used at the end of the conference.

Order(s) will be placed!

Inlove with all the photos. Just so beautiful. I chose “Cutting Through the Waves” and “Beauty in the Dawn”. I would have voted for them all, honestly.

it would as always be interesting to know where and when the photos were taken ?
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Who would have thought that a theme like ropes for a photo competition would generate so many fantastic photos.  Well done to everyone who contributed. 

Congratulations to Hamburger, the winner of the September 2017 competition with his photo "Newcastle"


The runner up is Peter Hamill's photos "in detail" which not only captured the ropes but gives a lovely view of QE2's bow. 


As there were three photos tying for the runner up position until the last few days, I thought you would like to see the other photos that gained voters' interest. 

Cunarder Man's "Tight Rope"


and my own photo of QE2 on the stocks awaiting her launch "Ropes to the ready"

Congratulations to Hamburger for his spectacular photo of QE2 in Newcastle !  It is an amazing photo capturing QE2's majesty and strength against the forces of Nature !

And Congratulations to Peter Hamill for the runner up photo of "In Detail" which does indeed provide a fabulous view of QE2's beautiful bow and the ropes holding her fast !

Cunarder Man's "Tight Rope" and Lynda's "Ropes to the Ready" are wonderful in their own right as are all of the marvelous photos entered in the September 2017 competition.

Everyone's photos are a wonderful tribute to our beloved QE2 and each and every one defines her being in a unique way !

Quite appropriate that three photos were "tying" for runner up!

Congratulations to Hamburger with the dark sky making a nice contrast and to those who voted for mine.
