    put a B&W adjustment layer over your background image, and use a BLACK PAINT BRUSH to paint the mask on areas you want to have color.

    for more detailed steps, do a search in the digital darkroom forum. =)
    sigh.

    321,

    Photoshop is wonderful bcos u can use several methods to do one thing :
    One fast way is:

    1) create new layer
    2) draw a selection around the object u want to be in colour
    3) save the selection
    4) Invert selection
    5) go to adjustment and selection 'black/white'.

    Walah, U got wat u want.
    Hope that helps. God bless.

    Just select the wanted object using the lasso tool, click on Select - Feather and type 20px. Click on ctrl+shift+I to invert selection. Then adjust the saturation to remove the colour of background
