Ken, the winner of the December competition has chosen QE2's Open Bridge Wings as the theme for the February Photo of the Month Competition.  Ken mentioned that "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."  

This is going to be an interesting subject and I am looking forward to seeing your entries to the competition.  In addition to enjoying participating in the competition we have a special prize for the February competition winner .  Amberley Publishing have very generously donated a copy of William H Miller's new book "The Last Atlantic Liners - Getting there is half the fun" for us to give away as a prize in the photo competition!  Have a look details of the book:

I've uploaded mine.  This was difficult to narrow it down and select 3, as always, since there are no bad angles to photography QE2!

I have uploaded my 3 photos, which are not terribly good, but I so enjoyed looking at photos to find these.

So far you have entered 32 amazing photos of the QE2's Open Bridge Wings for this month's competition.  The detail of this feature of the ship has been captured so well in these photos.  There is still time to enter your photo and remember there is a wonderful prize for the winner of this month's competition. William H Miller's new book "The Last Atlantic Liners - Getting there is half the fun" See here for details.

42 photos have now been entered for the February Photo of the Month competition - that must be a record! But there is still time to enter your favourite photo of QE2's Open Bridge Wings as you have until next Wednesday (29 February) to enter. 

This is my favourite theme so far but when it comes to voting I have not idea which one to vote for as they are all fabulous.   ;D
