This is how I selective color in both Adobe AND Paint shop Pro.

I zoom in and using the lasso (settings are freehand for Adobe, point to point for PSP) I outline everything I want to leave in color. The magnetic lasso works well in Adobe as well.

After I have outlined everything I want to leave in color, I invert my selection. Now everything that I want to have BW is selected.

Now, all you do is desaturate the selection. everything you want to stay in color will be in color, and the same for BW.

Really simple process without having to use layers and such.
