This month's theme is "Reflections and Shadows", chosen by Badger, the winner of the May competition.

It will be interesting to see what reflections and shadows we can bring to this theme from our photo collections -- there should be plenty of artistic views to choose from.

This will probably be the last month of photos to go into the 2015 calendar -- yours too might be one of the views we enjoy for a month next year!

The prize for the winner will be the QM2 book 'Queen Mary 2 - The First 10 Years' by Stephen Payne.  This was created for passengers on QM2's 10th Anniversary crossings and is not available for sale. Donated by Cunard.

The album is open -  so now is the time to look for your most interesting pictures on this theme. Wishing you fun as you search your photo collection to find three pictures to upload to the competition album:

The deadline for submitting photos is 31 August 2014. Voting will run from 1 September 2014 until 30 September 2014.

We look forward to seeing your photos in this month's competition. 

Enjoy yourselves!  :)

Very much looking forward to your photos! It is great to have such different themes following each other -- each of them highlighting yet another aspect of our favourite ship.

This is a fun theme! It took me quite a while to select three rather different pictures to enter.

This theme takes a little more reflection! 

I had to go back to my photo albums a few times and look at the possibilities,before I selected 3 photos.   :)

Some great photos submitted so far! :)
"The QE2 is one of the last great transatlantic liners, and arguably the most famous liner in the world"

"QE2 and Concorde, a partnership that lasted almost 30 years... two stunning pieces of engineering, never to be forgotten!"

I thought I was stuck, because I had no good photos of reflections, but then I realised it covered shadows as well, so I've just entered my 3. 

Good luck to everybody!

Beautiful collection coming together!

My old iMac suffered from a power surge in April. Thanks to our insurance company, the new one's arrived and my photos of QE2 are now safely installed - at last! :)

Good to know that your QE2 photos are safe Rosie and hope have 3 to submit for this months theme.

 It is always surprising to see the interpretation of each month's theme and how many excellent photos are submitted.
