The theme for the October competition "Marks of character, scratches, dents, repairs and patches" was chosen by Hamburger, the winner of the September competition.

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.  Whether or not you have 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.  Please do not vote for your own photos, if you have entered some. 

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 "Marks of character, scratches, dents, repairs and patches".

You will not see the outcome until after voting has closed on 1 January 2018, giving all time zones the chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours - enjoy!

The prize this month is the book "RMS Queen Elizabeth 2" by Janette McCutcheon, donated by Isabelle Prondzynski, or a jigsaw of the prizewinning photo, donated by June Ingram.

The poll is open -- I hope you will enjoy the photos and the memories! QE2 was one hard-working ship, and at times it showed.

And do appreciate the photographers by giving your three votes :) .

That was hard,  welcome back the Christmas moji things, we must be getting near.
   
  Not wanting to start another topic, as this question relates to one of the photos, (however mods will decide).
  The photo 'like a stranded whale' , shows a definate line of rivets running fwd to aft out of shot,  with a definate overlap.  I thought she was all welded, is this repair work from say Marthas Vinyard,  or suchlike, or is this original,    never seen it before , unaware of the existance, was it both sides,   SKILLY where are you :-\ :-\

This is too hard! I want to vote for them all!

Maybe temporary repairs after Martha's Vineyard but before complete repairs in Germany?

EDIT: Sorry was taken in November 1999 at Bremerhaven so can't be temporary from Martha's Vineyard. It's certainly curious to see. This was the first refit under Carnival and saw her return to the Charcoal/Federal Grey hull from the Midnight Blue hull of Project Lifestyle - most notably.

This is the best match of photos to theme I've ever seen in the contest!  Well done to all submitters; this will be a difficult choice and I will need to spend some time choosing.

This month, we have a large number of entries, but only 11 voters so far.

This means that no photo has any significant number of votes, and very many have received no votes at all.

It would be great if you could support the competition and the photographers by taking just a few minutes to select your three favourites and declaring your decision by ticking the relevant boxes! Thank you :) .
