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

The theme of the April competition was "QE2: The bit beneath the Bridge"  an area of the ship that many members loved to frequent to enjoy the view whether the ship was at sea or when sailing into a port or for the sail away.

We had asked for  pictures either of the Bit beneath the Bridge itself (the forward outlook deck underneath the Bridge), or they could be views taken from that position.

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

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.   You will probably get a better view of the photos in the Gallery where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form and 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

You will not see the results until the voting has closed on 31 May 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!

Congratulations, stowaway2k, for your beautiful "Twilight", the winner of this month's competition!

Fraser Ballantyne, with "The Bridge and Below", was the excellent runner-up.

Both pictures show up the "bit beneath the bridge" to perfection and against a lovely blue sky.

Many thanks also to all who voted -- an exercise that always makes me happy because it gives me another chance to have a proper look at the beautiful pictures :) .

Wow................delighted to have come second especially as I was beaten by the picture I voted for !!
"Twilight" really stood out with the added interest of that little satellite twinkling in the sky.  A lovely picture.
I will need to give a little thought regarding my choice of subject for another contest, but I won't take long.
Kindest Regards,
Fraser.

I think that "little satellite" is actually the Moon?

Indeed, the moon. 
Thank you for the votes and the complements.   :)

There is a satellite that extends solar panels and from where I live it is the brightest thing in the sky at night.  I completely forgot about the Moon !!!!!!

Sorry I know that i'm off topic but this is for Fraser. Back in the early '80s I worked with a hotel officer caled Rupert Ballantyne, I think it was the Countess. A relation of yours?
Don't just be part of her past, be part of her history!

That satellite you are seeing every now and again will be the International Space Station; it's as bright as Venus.  You can find predictions for it on heavens-above.com ( which is a very useful site as you can set it for your own specific location ).

Returning to the winning photo, I would go further and venture that, to me, that Moon looks like it is a crescent roughly three days before first quarter phase.

Alan,   I would have been delighted to know that a relation of mine had worked n the Countess, but alas, it was no relative of mine.

Fraser
