Try making a selection and put that selection in a new layer and then make that layer B&W.

Try this using the Expert tab: 1. Open the picture file 2. Use one of the selection tools, e.g. lasso tool or selection brush, to select the area that will be B&W 3. Place the selection on its own layer - press CRL+J 4. Open a solid color fill adjustment layer above this. In the dialog that opens, be sure that black is selected 5. Group the top 2 layers - press CTRL+G
