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

Thank-you to Hamburger the winner of the March competition, who suggested the theme, "Your final shot of QE2" for the June Photo Competition. 

Plus a big thank-you to everyone who submitted photos, which we really appreciate

Voting is easy but you need to be a forum member and log into the forum to vote.  Even if you have not submitted photos please support those who have participated by choosing your three favourite photos, noting the details then tick the relevant box on the poll.  But if you have submitted photos please do not vote for the photos you have entered. 

To make it easier for you we have posted the photos below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery.   When there are many entries you will probably get a better view of the photos in the Gallery where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photo to see medium size, then  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=135

The prize this month is the book QM2, the first ten years, by Stephen Payne, donated by Cunard

Alternatively, June Ingram has offered as a prize the jigsaw version of the winning photo. It will be interesting to see which is preferred!


You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 August 2015 giving other time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

Please enjoy viewing these fantastic photos and thank-you for voting:)

I have just added two additional photos (to be found at the end of the list) which were submitted to the Admin mailbox as requested but ended up in the Spam folder for unknown reasons, where they were only spotted today.

Sincere apologies to the photographer and to the voters!

If anyone who has already voted would like to change their vote to include one or both of these, please do so -- the system will allow it. And for those who have not yet voted, the list is now complete, so enjoy the pictures and decide which are your three favourites!

I have just voted.  It was a very difficult decision knowing that each photo holds a very special remembrance of our QE2 by the photographer.  They are all such very wonderful photos  :), but at the same time very moving  :'(

This is quite a sad topic, I didn't think I'd be moved -but there you go, as June says these photos are personal & mean so much but I've voted very hard this one.

So many nostalgic pictures here... and so few votes... please take a look and relive the memories!

Only 14 votes on the 28th of the month...

... has everyone gone off on holidays... or is it perhaps too painful to look at these pictures?  :'(

Just a few short hours left to cast your vote if you have not already done so.  These photos are an amazing collection depicting our beloved QE2 in the photographers' last shot ever of their favorite ship.

Just thinking...!
All of these photos are so evocative; maybe they could make up a Calendar on their own.
S'pose a problem could arise when subsequent tears could be somewhat overwhelming!

On the other hand, maybe they need to go in a Good Book, entitled 'Our Memories of QE2: A Reminder to All Who Sailed in the Most Famous Ocean Liner'
Perhaps this may include her past, present and future owners  :)

I like that idea, a book of our QE2 snapshots......not staged/expert shots. The beautiful moments we all captured, our memories!
Maybe the humourous photos could be included too 😍
