Picture of the Month - May 2006

Welcome to May's Picture of the Month poll!

To emphasize that the Picture of the Month polls are different from other polls around the forum, and that the emphasis should be on the pictures rather than the royal houses for which they represent, instead of the country name, the pictures are embedded into the poll choices this month. To see the image in its full size, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

Belgium: Mette2 - Dennism, pdas1201 and Danielle

Spain: mtbcm - LaChicaMadrilena, Elsa M., Anna_R

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Morocco: Humera - Amira

Brunei: Humera - Warren

Monaco: tbhrc - Ianna, Michelle, Iceflower

Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

Norway: purple_platinum - Larzen, LaMinka

Sweden: purple_platinum - Lena, GrandDuchess

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie

Britain: princejohnny25 - ysbel, HMQueenElizabethII, Avalon

Denmark: H.M. Margrethe - Mandy, norwegianne, pdas1201

The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on June 23. During these three weeks, we ask that no one state whom they've voted for so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. For the final week of the month, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

Please note that the pictures in the above poll have been posted in a random order, first by their shape (portrait or landscape), and do not reflect any personal feelings of The Moderating Team.

Wow, another great month of pics to choose from. I hope everybody likes the selection of pics from the royals' events in May.

I'd like to remind people NOT TO STATE WHO YOU VOTED FOR until the poll is finished on June 23.

Well I have to admit I'm a bit bummed out. I was actually in the building where Madeleine appeared in the Winter Garden at the gala event but I didn't know she was there.

Its the office building where I work and I saw the catering staff prepare a very lavish feast but I was working late and wanted to get home so I missed out on the opportunity to see the King, Queen and Madeleine.

No excuse, ysbel! You should have been reading the Swedish forum and then you'd have known!

Better luck next time...

I have a feeling the votes are going to be very close this time. :) Thanks to everybody who helped choose the pictures and took the time to make this wonderful poll. There's a lot of great pictures and it's a bummer we can only choose one!

How hard is to choose just one pic when there are babies in them! Do you all know how much I love babies!

But all May pics are excellent as well...
