I quite agree with you both -- looking forward to searching for some good entries in August!

Ken, as you were the joint prizewinner of the first competition, please choose the subject for September. I wonder which it will be?

I would like to add this theme QE2 Sunrise/Sunsets - that means photos of sunrise or sunsets with the QE2 or part of the ship in the picture.

Cunardqueen has suggested the following topic for the October Photo of the Month Competition:

"QE2 a tender view" it can include QE2 from the tenders, and for those that never used them, they can use photos taken on the decks showing the tenders.

Cunarder Man has suggested for the November Photo of the Month Competition:

QE2 Remember Remember! 

Remembrance is key to the month of November.   I am sure our photos will be a remembrance of QE2 in November.

And for December - Might it be an idea to show images of 'QE2 in her Element'?

Frazscot, who had the winning photo of QE2 on the Clyde has chosen:

 "QE2 and her passengers" for the Photo Competition theme for December.   The photos will be about people on board ( not the crew or waiters) but still showing that they are on QE2.

Now that it is getting colder and darker I need to start sorting out my QE2 photos ready for next year's competition.

The initial post for this topic has a list of themes for the photo competition that have been suggested by members.  If you can think of any other themes please post them below and I will add them to the list.

How about something to do with her Interior that is unmistakable, and unique to QE2

And maybe something about the Art Work
separate from Posters on E stairway, and have these separated too?

And something to do with the Bit Beneath the Bridge

And a Sailaway

Exterior Lights on board QE2

And QE2 doing what she does best - 'QE2 in her element'!
(already on list)

Lynda - when you have fewer ideas  (and guess you won't for some time yet!)- do you think it might be an idea to repeat the subjects from last year...?

Lynda,

How about QE2's Open Bridge Wings.  This was a feature that became more unique to the ship as most modern day ships (all of the current Cunard fleet for starters) has enclosed bridge wings, which do not give the passengers a good view of the captain and crew at work during docking maneuvers.  I know this could fall under "exterior features, " though, but I thought this might deserve a specific topic.

Thanks Rosie and Ken for your suggestions which I have added to the list.  Let me know if I need to add any more details. Rosie, I noted QE2 Art work on QE2 as including paintings and sculptures to keep the theme as wide as possible.  Let me know if this is waht you were thinking. 

I also added QE2's beautiful Bow.  We already have a theme for QE2's Bow at Sea so perhaps we should combine these into a theme QE2's beautiful Bow (photos at sea or in port).  I think that would be better but let me know what you think.
