    OK, I don't use Photoshop as such, but with any editor, you first need to select the portion of the shot that you want to show in colour, and then invert your selection and transform the remainder to Mono.

    Add a Black and White Adjustment Layer then add a layer mask to that and paint out (black) the color you want to preserve.

    If you download The free NIK filters suite, there is a superb B+W editor in that called SilverEfex pro2 which will add a layer then when happy with the B+W , do as Mike said and paint out the part you want coloured from that layer

    One of the Nik applications has a selective colour filter to achieve this. Can't remember if it's a selective colour in Silver Efex or a selective mono in Colour Efex. Used it once and it worked well.
