Poll for October 2022 : Colour Black
« on: Nov 29, 2022, 02:37 PM »
The theme for the October Competition, "Colour Black" was kept running through October and November and resulted in some excellent entries.  The theme was chosen by Cunarder Man.

Please vote for your three favourite photos. This is the second competition of the new calendar year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2024 QE2 Story Calendar.

The prize this month is the Vistaprint Desk Calendar, a special prize, as it is not available for purchase.

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as a Forum member and log into the Forum to vote.  Whether or not you have submitted photos, please support those who have participated, by choosing your 3 favourite ones, noting the details, then tick the relevant boxes on the poll.  If you have entered photos, please do not vote for your own pictures.

Forgot Password

To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below.

However, you might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "Colour Black" where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form. Plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photos to see medium size, and clicking once more to see them in large size.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 January 2023, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

Enjoy the variety and memories expressed in these photos and choose your three favourites.

Voted for my three favourite picture and was surprised that I was the first to vote. Where is everyone?

As usual it was a very difficult choice but I thoroughly enjoyed sitting with a cup of coffee and viewing all these fabulous picture.

Thanks Rob for the Christmas themed imoges  :-*

I've voted.

Once again, I protest that three votes is insufficient!  ;D

Ten people have voted so far and but with just under a week until the poll closes, we really need more people to vote. Now that the Christmas rush is over hopefully you can find a few minutes to view the photos and vote so as to support your fellow members.

Love these photos..I worked on the lido deck as well heli deck with Dennis Dawson..I remember sitting alone on  the lido when I came back on board as a passenger. It was truly amazing to be a passenger after working on board.
I felt so lucky at the time. It was my wife's first ever cruise too.. it just went downhill from there..we've been on many cruises, but there's no ship ever that will top the Queen...
