Poll January 2020 : Ropes, Cables, and Chains
« on: Jan 31, 2020, 03:14 PM »
The theme for the January Competition, "Ropes, Cables and Chains" was chosen by shipnshore.

Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures, which we really appreciate. We hope that you enjoy choosing and voting for your 3 favourites.  This is the fifth competition of the new "calendar" year with winning and runner up photos going towards the 2021 QE2 Calendar.

The prize this month is "QE2 the Final Voyage -- Britain Waves Goodbye" donated by Pia or a 500 or 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle of the prizewinning photo.

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 3 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 by clicking the Gallery Album, "Ropes, Cables and Chains", 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 March 2020 after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

As always the choice is yours - enjoy!

My votes are in; once again an agonising decision over the third choice!

17 voters now and just a couple of days left to the end of the month.

Two photos are in tight competition, and it may be your vote that determines which of them wins the prize this month, or indeed whether another picture might catch up with them.

19 voters now (thank you!) and less than a day to go before the poll closes.

Two photos still running neck-and-neck, your vote may be decisive!
