Wonderful photos here...

15 people have voted so far. Do take the time to have a good look at these pictures and see which three you like best -- it may not be an easy job, but it is worth the pleasure involved :) .

Very slow voting this month... only 17 people have voted so far, and the month is almost over...

Do you look at the entries and enjoy them? They bring back such wonderful memories... If so, it only takes a minute to select your favourite three and cast your vote :) .

I have just voted and it is always a difficult decision.  I like to look at the photos several times throughout the month and then cast my ballot toward the end of the month.  The photos are spectacular and some of the photos this month seem to be more poignant than some others have been; perhaps it is just that we are getting closer to November and QE2's final voyage to Dubai. 

Please do vote if you have not already done so.   :)

Twenty-five people have voted. One clear winner emerging but another is close behind.  If you have not voted yet, pour yourself a cup of tea, enjoy viewing the photos, and vote for your three favourites.
