    lassoing can drive one crazy sometimes. I like quick mask, a bit more steps than lassoing but more precise.

    What is selective colouring?

    You mean like changing the yellow autumn leaves to blue?
    That you can use HSV filter. Check out Adobe's Help. (Press F1)

    You could use the pen tool to select also... Think it's quite cool & not hard to use...

    Yup.

    Use the pen tool to select.
    Press Ctrl+Enter to change the path into the marching-ants selection.

    I feel all selection techniques have their respective learning curve and needs practice. The pen tool is great if you can master it!
