Picture of the Month - October 2006

Welcome to October's Picture of the Month poll!

So that we can keep the Picture of the Month poll in compliance with the recent rule changes regarding the sharing of copyrighted photos here at The Royal Forums, this month's candidates for Picture of the Month are presented to you in the form of weblinks. We hope your enthusiasm for the polls will remain at its customary exuberance. To view the photos, click on the links.


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: Danielle - Dennism, Adry

Britain: ysbel - Avalon, Warren

Brunei: Humera - Warren


Denmark: soCal girl – Lasse Pedersen, Mandy, norwegianne


Japan: mandyy - kei893265, merampo

Jordan: Humera - Little_star

Luxembourg: suturegeisha - drimal

Monaco: tbhrc - Ianna, Michelle, Iceflower

Morocco: Humera – Warren

Norway: Her_Majesty - Larzen, purple_platinum

Spain: mtbcm - LaChicaMadrilena, Elsa M., Anna_R

Sweden: MoonlightRhapsody (For October the Swedish picture was chosen by Mandy and ysbel)

The Netherlands: The Watcher - Marengo, Maxie



The poll will be open for three weeks. It will close on November 25. 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 links in the above poll have been posted in the order in which they were received and do not reflect the opinions of the moderating team.
