    Make a very very good selection, put the figurer on its own layer, and
    use a Channel Mixer Adjustment Layer with Monochrome checked.

    use the magnetic lasso to go around the person very carefully, use the magic
    wand to add/minus, clean up the selection
    check the mask by using the squares at bottom of tool bar, brushes can be
    used on the mask
    feather the selection for a softer blend
    make a new adjustment layer, select hue-saturation, move center slider to
    left
    at bottom of the palette click the mask from selection button

    you might also try using the sponge to desaturate the person, leaving it in
    greyscale

    yeah read my post
    channel mixer is not the best choice for this

    just FYI on turning images to B&W
    this method is the best way to control the values

    Forget selections

    Desaturate the entire picture then use a fairly soft edged history
    brush to bring the color back where you want it.
