The theme for the April competition "QE2 -- It's all in the details" was chosen by Pete Cain. 

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

Voting is easy, but you need to be registered as 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.  If you have entered photos please do not vote for your own pictures.

To make it easier for you, we have posted the pictures below, however you can also view the photos in the Gallery Album, "QE2 -- It's all in the details" 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, and click once more to see them in large size.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 June 2019, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline. 

As always the choice is yours - enjoy!

Even though there are not a lot of entries for last month's competition it was still very difficult to choose.

It is early on in the month, but let's get a good start on voting for this month's competition and get a good number of votes by the end of the month.  Now, I have to get back to deciding on my vote of my three favourite photos !   :)

10 voters so far.  There is such a magnificent assortment of photos, it is almost impossible to choose just three.  Let's keep the votes coming in this month !   :)

Voted! Great variety and great topic to allow that!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.

15 voters !  That is great !  And we still have a number of days this month to bring up the number of voters.  Please vote if you have not already done so.  It is most enjoyable to look at all the QE2 photos each month, but it is difficult to make a choice of only three favourites !   :)

21 voters now ! Very good, but can we please have more ? If you have not yet joined those of us who have made their selection of their three favourite photos, please do so.  Just log in, have a look at all of the wonderful choices, and cast your ballot.  Again, please contact us if you experience any problem at all in negotiating the voting.  By the way, one photo is pretty far in the lead !  :) :)

Given just how many members are out there , Yes we do need more..Much more votes !
Jees how hard can it be to cast a vote...

Im sure l speak for others when l say that a lot of time and effort goes into selecting the photos and its really quite pathetic if we can only muster 21 votes

Or is it a case that simply its so difficult a choice to select the photos that people are just not doing it. 
There a great deal of hard work i imagine goes on behind the scenes to get this in order, then the few members that do upload them for viewing , there a choice of prize linked toward each wining photo...
So just where are all the voters...
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
