Poll June 2020 : Surprise
« on: Jul 05, 2020, 12:03 PM »
The theme for the May Competition, "Surprise" was chosen by Frazscot.

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 tenth competition of the new "calendar" year, with winning and runner-up photos going towards the 2021 QE2 Story Calendar.

The prize this month is the book "The Story of Saga Rose & Saga Ruby" by Anders Johannessen, 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 boxes 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, "Surprise ", where you can see them all at once, in thumbnail form, plus you can view larger versions of the pictures by clicking on the photos to see medium size, and clicking once more to see them in large size.

You will not see the results of the vote until the poll has closed on 1 August 2020, after all time zones have had a chance to catch up with the voting deadline.

I am sure you will agree that these photos help us remember the lovely surprises we had when we were on QE2 or able to admire her from shoreside.

As always the choice is yours - enjoy!

Excellent photos  - as always it is difficult to choose only three, but choice made. 

If you have not voted yet have a look and choose your three favourites.

One photo in a one-vote lead, with three others in hot pursuit and several more just behind. A great theme with so many options!
