The theme did get the grey matter working, same as the Motion theme for next month is.

Pretty much summed it up, when you spot something that looks good with the crop, it doesn't look right in selective colour.  >:(

Only 10 votes cast? C'mon people - get voting!

Doesn't seem to be the appetite for the POTM any more, either for submissions or for picking a favourite.

Time to call it a day?
I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

While it's a bit sad, if the participation isn't there its not really worth the effort on your part...

It all depends on how long you are willing to keep this up since you are doing 100% of the work.
I would say if it's becoming too much trouble (for the amount of input you've been getting), then feel free to call it a day.
And I wouldn't feel bad about doing it either, if I were you. You have a full plate elsewhere these days.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

But I haven't won yet!  And the odds of me winning this month are relatively low since I don't have an entry.   ::)

I think we can finish the POTM on a high note now ;) :P

Nice work Suka and Bish! I'm glad we got at least a couple of different interpretations!

I was originally going to enter the shot below, but last minute switched to one I took later the same day, and I'm glad that someone entered a similar type of B&W/colour mix
