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

The theme for the August competition was "QE2 viewed from high places", chosen by Peter Hamill the runner up of the May 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 the three best 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 Isle of Man stamp set of QE2, donated by the Lynda Bradford and valued at GBP 10 at the time of purchase.

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

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

I chose this topic as I suspected it would generate a deluge of awesomeness (if that is a word) - and it hasn't disappointed.
Only 3 votes allowed? Doesn't seem enough!

Perhaps an ideal time to plug the comp on social media, increase the votes and boost the sale of the calendars..any publicity is good publicity ;) 
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

A week is left to vote and help decide the outcome!

20 votes in, and we still have potential joint gold / silver medallists, with the potential bronze medallist following by one vote behind.

Your vote could be the decisive one -- and you still have three days to get it in!
