Looks Great!

Can you let me know how you did it please? Specifically what buttons you pressed

Just got Photoshop a few days ago and playing around with it, thanks.

Photoshop CS,

Its quite easy pick a tool either magig wand,sqaure or that loop thingy.Go round what you want to turn black&white then click image on top bar,adjustments,desaturate.There done the part you clicked or looped of should be black&white.

If all that makes any sense.
