The idea of shooting in colour is that you can then desaturate and manipulate the individual colour channels to taste,

Thanks everyone. I really do feel honored. So many of the submissions were excellent. I agree that having the voting for a slightly longer period may be better.

I don't have that option on my camera. I'm assuming others do not as well. Besides the fact that conversions in Photoshop allow for more manipulation of tonal range.

Also---I used a photo that I already had which was taken in color. (taken only last month but not in b&w because the contest theme had not been chosen yet).

Yes, I'd also support the notion of a longer voting period. Was it just for one day? Why not two, or three days?

The issue of the voting period has been addressed: for December and going forward, it will be a minimum of 3 days. The last 3 days of the month.

Thank you for your feedback.
