Thanks Bob, it is really good to hear that you are pleased that you photo was chosen as a joint winner and that you enjoy participating in the competition.  I will be contacting you soon by PM about your prize.  We are fortunate this year to have been donate some prizes to award to our winners. 

The Forum has a good team working in the background, to hopefully make things run smoothly. We have been pleased with how the photo competition has attracted so many photos for us all to enjoy and also the progress from photo competition to the Calendar, which gives a lasting memory.

Well done Isabelle !
As someone who in all my sailings hardly missed an afternoon tea, i can safely say l never once skipped a tray of the fancies.

The picture Al fresco was taken late one afternoon on the homeward crossing from New York, it was just sitting there and l just had to grab a picture.

The Scene is set was taken in Greenock, my parents were coming onboard for the day, the afternoon tea my dad still heaps praise upon as being the best tea ever, and mum wishes she had taken the tart that she declined when offered. and as for me, Afternoon Tea on QE2 was and always will be the standard l judge others by.

Thanks for voting the pics as a runner up twice..

What a great picture the winner was.     It jumped out at you had to be the winner.       
I'm happy with my 4.7 percent vote but nothing could beat Ed1000 !!    Well Done.

Congratulation to our winner and runner up of the August Photo Competition "Reflections and Shadows"

The winner is Hamburger with his photo "Rainy Reflections" which has been a firm favourite of voters.  Hamburger submits some lovely images to the photo competitions and we always appreciate his contribution. 


The runner up is Rob Lightbody with "Sleeping Beauty"  As QE2 continues to sleep in Dubai, Rob's photo gives a very peaceful image of the ship in slumber in the shadow.  Wouldn't this photo make a lovely poster?


Thank-you to everyone who submitted photos and voted. 

Now that the poll has closed you can view the results:
