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

The theme for the February competition was "QE2 and Flotilla", chosen by Bob C after the November competition.

Thank-you to everyone who submitted photos, which we really appreciate and we hope that you enjoy choosing your 3 favourite photos

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  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. Go to Gallery Album

The prize this month is the  official DVD of QE2's voyage to Dubai, donated by Isabelle Prondzinski

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 April 2016 giving other time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

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

Only ten people have voted so far, and we are approaching the end of the month.

Please have a look at the pictures, which should bring back happy memories of QE2 accompanied by a flotilla, and choose which of these fine pictures should win a prize and get the opportunity to grace next year's calendar!

Thank you for supporting the photo competitions -- they have brought so many excellent pictures into the Forum, which we might not otherwise have had the chance to see and archive here for the future.

Just voted, thank you for the prompt Isabelle, (must be the lost hours sleep). I think this was a hard one to pick just 3 from.....

I just voted, and I know I say this every month, BUT, every photograph entered is worthy of a prize and has special meaning not only to the photographer but to all of us here. 

If you have not yet voted, please do so.  Not only does it support the entries, but it is a wonderful way to commune with our QE2 through marvelous photos taken throughout the years !
