Hi Juliet, this is a natural pose and looks good! Could you PM me that bw/colour info? I'd like to know the best way too!
Many thanks!
Well done!

great capture and i like what you've done with the b/w background. i'd be interested in how you've achieved this too (being relatively new to photoshop).

Create a new layer in photoshop.

At the bottom of the layer is a circle half black and white. Click on that and choose black and white from the drop down menu.

now choose the brush tool from the left hand boxed menu. change the size of the brush using the lower toolbar menu (you'll see the brush size circle and a number) depending on the area size in your photo.

now change the opacity on the lower toolbar slider to decide how much colour you want to allow through.

now just use your cursor to brush over the part of the image you want in colour - it really is that easy!!!

cheers - Juliet xxx

Well spotted! And I love the effect you've created with the black and white background. Looks great with the muted colours of the clothes he's wearing.
