Congratulations Cunarder Man and Isabelle! Your pictures are both great!

Thank you very much! I also thought that the Stairwell (a much loved motif which many of us have enjoyed taking) was exceptionally well composed by Cunarder Man -- congratulations, John!

Congratulations on the winning stairwell photo.
It must be said, the stairwell photos are always beautiful, But prior to the ghastly silver handrail being added they were very soothing on the eye. Those of us who remember the days before the addition will also marvel and just how low the stair rail actually was. and how no one ever fell over them during a storm. They were very low indeed  :o
The photo shown should give an idea of how low they were before the addition.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

I like that blue color!

Crew having fun was certainly a fun theme for the July competition that resulted in excellent pictures being uploaded.

and the joint winners are ........

Rob Lightbody's picture "Anchor fun"



and Cunarder Man's "Crossing the Line"



Very close contest and a difficult choice as we have four runners up this month: 

Baked Alaska Dinner: Hugh Ritchie


Dubai having fun outside the Queens Grill: Rob Lightbody


Thomas! : Cruiseqe2


Crew Viewing Gallery: Cunarder Man


In my eye all the pictures submitted are winners.  Thank-you to everyone

I'm delighted to be a joint winner!

I don't always have a photo suitable to enter with, and I'm usually reluctant to use my Dubai photos as it seems unfair somehow, but I couldn't resist with those photos!

Fantastic photos everyone, really wonderful.

Congratulations to fellow winners! Yet again, there were many great entries this month.

The picture 'Crossing the Line' was taken on the World cruise in 2002 in the Indian Ocean. King Neptune had said his piece and with the initiation of the Pollywogs to Shellbacks over the fun began. There was so much gunge splashed about the swimming pool it was emptied and washed afterwards. I've never seen such a mess on the aft deck. However, the crew had it cleaned up in no time at all.
