Firstly - Thank you for Voting, and what a lovely surprise!
To be honest this has always been selfishly, my favourite  shot of the sailaway taken with very tearful eyes, waving at the same time and it was freezing cold.
This was taken  just before Captain McNaught must have moved his hand on the High Speed Ahead lever - as QE2 literally looked as if she couldn't bear any more of the hanging about - she needed to get away before getting the hankies out.
The Saddest Night with the Greatest ship.

Congratulations to the winner and runner up of the January competition and a big thank-you to everyone who entered photos and/or voted.

The winner and a very popular choice of those who voted is Cunarder Man's picture " Tandem departure NY 2004"



.... and another popular picture was the runner up - Bob C's photo "Summer in the (New York) City"




Both picture capture the theme very well and we are so lucky that our forum members continue to support the competition so that we see so many photos of QE2 over the years.

However, we need our forum members to keep uploading their photos to the competition. Even if you cannot enter photos every month the moderator team would be so grateful if you could vote so as to support the competition and keep the memory of QE2 alive.


You can see the result of the poll now that the voting is finished.

Congratulations to the winner and runner up of the April 23 Photo Competition.  Is it significant that the two photos are from QE2's last visit to Clydeside - the place of her birth?

Thank-you to everyone who entered photos and voted. 

The winning photo was "Hero Worship" taken by Pete Hamill on QE2's last visit to Greenock 2008



The runner up was Cunarder Man's photo "Admired by all QE2's final visit to Greenock 2008"



All the photos in the competition bring back happy memories to all QE2 fans.

Thanks Isabelle. The best photo opportunities of the ship were always when I wasn't travelling on board (unfortunately). I used up a few memory cards in the camera that day!

Gosh, Thanks for the votes, This was taken on the Final Eastbound Crossing, a group of us, a rather large group had completed the cabin cavalcade and it was the night of the Captain Reception. The Queens room was being set up for the party and l was just entering the Queens Room on my way back to get changed, it was nearly empty and the lights were all on so l just snapped a picture , snapped a picture of the lovely blue seats, and turned the camera onto black and white or whatever setting it is and took the ceiling lights in Black and White, a couple of pics were blurred. I always thought the two main lights looked like eyes and that's where I chose to have the center of the photo at , snap snap snap and all over in seconds. Hindsight is what it is l should have laid out on the floor and taken the photos from that position.
 Can't help but think about what the Queens Room looks like now. 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

The poll has closed for the June competition "Crew Parties" and the winning photos is Maureen Kragten-Munsch's picture "Christmas Pantry". A worthy winner that shows that even though the crew were working hard to make sure passengers enjoyed Christmas Day on the ship, the crew could still have a bit of a party behind the scenes.  Congratulations to Maureen. 



There were two runner up photos this month.

Maureen Kragten-Munsch's photo "Norway outing with shop girls"



and

Cunarder Man's photo "Last ever Crew Party on board QE2 Nov 2008"



Congratulations to our winners and thank-you to everyone who participated.
