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

Thanks to everyone who submitted photos for the June 2014 Photo Competition "Favourite Sailaways"  and thanks also to harev, the winner of the March competition for choosing this inspiring theme.   

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.  Please choose up to three photos you want to vote for, remember the photo titles, then tick the relevant boxes on the voting poll.

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:

https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=117

You will not see the results until after voting has closed on 1 August 2014, giving all time zones the chance to reach  the voting deadline at the end of this month.

The prize for the winner will be the superb Amberley publication on Cunard, a Photographic History, donated by Rob Lightbody :

I am just catching up with the entries for last month's photo competition and I was delighted at the quality of the photos submitted for "Favourite Sailaways" It was very difficult to choose only three but after much deliberation, I have made my choice. 

I hope you can find time to have a look at these wonderful photos and vote for your three favourites.

Only 11 voters so far in this beautiful theme. There are so many entries this month and as yet there is no clear favourite.

Voting in the photo competition is a pleasure, and an easy way to support the Forum and its photographers -- do have a go and enjoy the lovely views as you do so!

I have just submitted my votes, and again, what a difficult decision.

Every photo is spectacular and each pays homage to our beloved QE2 in a unique and beautiful way !

Still time for a few more votes. A clear leader so far but a tie for runner up, your vote can make a difference so make your choice from yet another terrific selection of photos.
Don't just be part of her past, be part of her history!
