Due to other commitments I need to end the on-going July competition early, on July 27th. So,  get your July dated pics in before then, to qualify; no voting until the 28th, though. For the same reason the June competition voting will also end early, on July 26th, so that I can post the results on the 27th July. You have just 5 days to vote. Please vote now if you havn't already done so, and thank you to all of you who vote - your efforts are very much appreciated.
