Photo of the month competition - instructions on how to vote for your favourite photo

The theme of the September competition was "QE2 in her element, a theme that gave our members the opportunity to select photos that best fitted the theme. 

Forum members can vote for their favorite photo(s).  Each member has 3 votes (but please do not vote for your own photo).  Voting is open to all members regardless of whether or not you submitted a photo. 

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

But you can also view the photos submitted by members in the Gallery - where you will probably get a better view of the photos and where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form. You can then click on the pictures shown, and click again, to see them in large size.

Click on the Gallery button from the forum or click on this link :

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=73

Choose up to three photos you want to vote for, noting photo details, then tick the relevant boxes on the voting poll.

You will not see the results until the voting has closed on 31 October 2012 (closing time for your time zone is indicated at the bottom of the poll), after which the winner will be announced.


Good luck everyone who entered photos and thank you to everyone for voting!

Yes, Barrie, I also thought this was the most difficult vote yet -- a collection of excellent pictures showing QE2 in her element, in so many places and situations.

Congratulations to all submitting photographers for this splendid series, such a pleasure to look at again and again...

What I really enjoy about the photo competition is seeing the different interpretations of the theme.  The QE2 in her element theme shows the ship in her element, fighting the ocean waves as well as just being in her element in ports throughout the world, which was where many people remember her enhancing the scenery.

It was Cunard Queen who first suggested the Photo Competition in 2011 and at the time we could never have anticipated the number of wonderful photos that have been uploaded for us to enjoy.  Thank-you to Cunard Queen and to everyone who has participated.

It's already the 26th, the month will end soon, and so far we have 23 votes.

What saddens me here, is that so many of the beautiful pictures submitted, have not yet received even a single vote... and here was I thinking that this was one of our best entries ever!

Four pictures are currently leading in equal position, with 5 votes each.

In other words, if I may make this appeal : voters, please come and make your choice!

Only a couple of hours to go to vote for your favourite photos.  We have had a good response so far with 42 members voting.  At the moments we have a tie for the winning photo  :)

EXTREMELY difficult to vote this time.

There were far more than 3 "winners" as far as I was concerned.

Hello,
I'd like to thank you very much for voting my photographs. It was a very close run with many wonderful images.  I'll be back with some photographs fitting the monthly theme.
Best regards to all members of The QE2 Story.
