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

The theme of the January competition was "QE2 and the weather" and what a brilliant selection of photos of QE2 in the snow, the fog, in calm seas and not so calm seas.  Thank-you to everyone who contributed. 

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=88

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 28 February 2013 (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!

Ten days into voting and only nine members have voted so far.   :(

Maybe having a look at the photos in the Gallery will help you to make a decision on your three favourite photos

One picture really stood out for a reason that I can't say until after the voting has closed.
But that apart it was very difficult to make my second & third choice.     As I always went on board for a rest I didn't take a great many pictures so I have now let you all see anything that I considered decent so probably no more comp entries.
That does not mean to say that I will be losing interest, far from it !      I will be just as interested every month in seeing what great shots you all have.

Fraser we really appreciate your participation and we are glad to hear that you will continue to support the competition. 

I hope that all members are enjoying seeing the range of photos that members are submitting, I know that I am amazed at the standard of photos.   

I wish that I had taken more photos when I was onboard QE2.  I think that people who sailed on the ship, after it was announced that she was being decommissioned, had the foresight to take lots of photos. Well done!
 :)

Thank-you to everyone who voted in response to the newsletter I sent yesterday.  We have had a really good response.  :)

I wish that I had taken more photos when I was onboard QE2. 

So do I...unfortunately when I was onboard twice in the late 90's, I put a focus on filming. Unfortunately the quality today is so bad that it's even not worth to get some captures out of the film. I remember that we had bad weather on our transatlantic crossing, I stood forward on boat deck (at the closed stair up to observation deck under the bridge) when a huge amount of water spray passed by on the same level as I were. I wish I took a photo than instead of filming...  ::)

I said that there was one photograph that really stood out in this competition but it was not fair to say anything until; after the winner was decided .
I guess I can now say which one it was.............................it was the double rainbow !           This is one of the most difficult things to capture on film and whoever it was that took it should be very pleased with himself.

That's very kind of you and you are right, I was fascinated by the view, ran back to the cabin for the camera, and just managed it to get it. A minute afterwards the second rainbow was gone!
All the best

Hi Robert

Well Done!
Yours really is the best....and what brilliant competition there was for you!

Hoping that you are both keeping well.
Wishing I could remember, did I ever send you the pics of you on the tender...now almost exactly 2 yrs ago....?
It'll be v embarrassing if I didn't
Please do let me know!
All the best

Now I know that it's RobertQM2 that took the double rainbow pic, my congratulations on an excellent picture.  I guess it's a bit like a hole in one at golf, some people will never get one but we live in hope !!

Thank you btw for all the nice respones to the double rainbow, my secret favorite was #6, which turned out to be the winner. I also liked the one off Southampton pier in the fog. This always reminds me on a news announcement a long time ago, wich went like "Fog in the Channel, the continent is isolated".
Kind regards to all of you across the pond or just across the channel, from the heart of Europe.
