Poll for the September Photo Competition "Ropes"
« on: Oct 01, 2017, 09:37 PM »
The theme for the September competition "Ropes" was chosen by Cruise QE2.

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate, and we hope that you enjoy choosing your 3 favourites.

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 ones, 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 pictures 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 the Gallery Album "Ropes"

You will not see the results until after the voting has closed on 1 November 2017, giving all time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours enjoy!

One of the toughest choices, I thought. Great collection of photos, and great to see how many types of ropes were used on QE2, and in how many parts of the ship!

Ten people have voted so far and it is obvious that it is a difficult decision to choose as the votes are close. 

I have voted but could have changed my choice many times as there are so many excellent pictures.
