May 2023 : QE2 her lights and lighting
« on: May 07, 2023, 03:49 PM »
The theme for this month's photo competition is "QE2 her lights and lighting", chosen by Pete Hamill.

Photos should be taken during QE2's service life, from within the ship, on deck or from shoreside. Photos must show at least a sliver of QE2. The theme is open to your own interpretation. Is the focus on the light fixtures? On the lighting effect? Or even on QE2 all lit up in the distance at night. There should be plenty of excellent photos to fit the theme.

Some are already in the QE2 Story Gallery -- if you would like to use one of those for the competition, just let the Moderators know, and we can enter them for you, without removing them from their original albums.

Your description should if possible give some information about the location of the ship when the photo was taken, and the year.

Photos entered should be your own, or if not, please post them with permission of the photographer, mentioning the name for copyright reasons, and so that the owner can win the prize!

Enjoy the search! It is bound to bring many happy memories :) .



The prize this month is the Photo competition winners photo book (donated by Lynda Bradford). This is a very special book, not available for purchase, only as a prize in these competitions. It contains all the beautiful photos that have already won the competitions, arranged in a story telling manner.





How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most interesting pictures on this theme. Wishing you happy memories as you search your photo collection to find up to three pictures to upload to the competition album.

This link will take you straight there : QE2 her lights and lighting.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery before, have a look at these instructions, and if you have any problems or would like us to move a photo from the Gallery into the competition, just contact us on admin@theqe2story.com.

If it helps, you could email the photos to the above address, and we shall gladly upload them for you.

The deadline for submitting photos is 31 May 2023. Voting will run from 1 June 2023 until 1 July 2023, until everyone's time zone has caught up with the closing date.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this competition. 

This is the seventh month of photos for the 2024 calendar. Maybe your photo will figure there!

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

"QE2 her lights and lighting" is an excellent choice from Peter Hamill, which I hope will result in some excellent photos uploaded to the gallery.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's choice of photos to upload.   :)

I had a look at the photos in the Gallery albums and found there are many that meet this months' theme.

Lights in bars and restaurants, stairs, passageways, on deck in the Queens Room etc. 

If you need help uploading your pictures or you would like admin to link to an existing photo in a gallery album we can do this for you. 

Keep a light shining for QE2 by participating in this month's competition.

Hi everyone, there has not been a lot of photos uploaded so far, to this month's competition.  If you could spare some time to look for your QE2 photos that meet the theme and upload your three favourites we would appreciate your support.

There are 26 photos entered for the competition, but we would like to see a few more.  Already there is a nice selection of lighting on deck and interior lights, so lots of options. 

You have until 31 May to upload up to three photos that meet the theme ...... and maybe you will be the winner of the book ten years of Photo Competition winners.

Just a few hours to upload you photos that meet the theme for the May competition. 

The selection of photos upload are so good that it will make choosing a wine very difficult, when the poll is ready for your vote.
