Another thing you can do is create a layer over the top of your colour image, set the blend mode to color. Then on the colour layer, use image->adjustments->selective color to adjust the strength/balance of individual colour ranges - whilst still being able to see the final B&W image.

Everyone I can not thank you enough for all your feedback on this post, I am looking into a few of the options.

I guess I will post the image if all fails, but I am not a photographer LOL I am a web designer but wanting to work more with images ratehr than just front end design.

Thanks everyone for all your offers of help I will take you up on it if all my attemps fail
