    I have not done it myself but I image you would want to highlight and copy to a new layer the object(s) you wanted to be in color. Then select the orginal layer, that you want to be b&w, and desaturate it.

    Well that is the way I would do it. I just did a quick test and it worked for me. The worst part is selecting just what you want and not the other bits of the background area.

    At the background layer you got the b/w photo. Then select what you want to colour in another layer. Finally play w the fusion modes between layers

    Simpler way to go (for me at least)-

    Duplicate original layer
    Desature duplicate layer
    Use eraser tool to erase (on the duplicate layer) the part you want to be in color

    TaDa!

    Easy, neh? :)

    Another way, and my favorite by the way in photoshop. Is to take a history snapshot of the color image. Then desaturate it. Select the history brush with your snapshot as the source and simply start painting the color back in.
