Poll for May 2023 : QE2 Her Lights and Lighting
« on: Jun 06, 2023, 02:18 PM »
The theme for the May Competition, "QE2 Her Lights and Lighting", was chosen by Pete Hamill.

Please vote for your three favourite photos. This is the eighth 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 Photo Competition Winners Photo Book compiled and donated by Lynda Bradford.

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 ?

Here you can get a new one -- easy to do!



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

However, you might like to turn to the Gallery Album, "QE2 Her Lights and Lighting" 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 them in medium size, and clicking once more for large size.

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

Enjoy the great variety of the photos, and choose your three favourites.

Thanks June for setting up the poll I always look forward to sitting down with a cup of coffee and choosing my three favourite pictures.  As Peter has said it gets more and more difficult to choose only three, but fun just the same.

Lots of votes still missing! This is a big competition, and many people have contributed photos to make it interesting.

Enjoy browsing through them, and cast your vote for the three that strike you most. Even if you have never yet done it -- this is your chance, give it a go!

 They are all great photos, very difficult to choose just three.

There is still time to cast your ballot !

Only 14 voters so far... but fortunately, there is still a full day (and a bit more) to cast your vote and support the photographers.

Give it a go! And make sure the photo you like best makes it into the calendar for 2024!

Please....
