I used the dodge tool on a copy of the red channel and set it above the original in luminosity mode.

Now the quick selection tool will work well and the selection can be easily edited in quick mask mode. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshop/cs/using/WS649373C8-0D0C-4239-A2E2-B11124094BCB.html    With the selection still active and saved to an alpha channel, extract the subject and clean up any 'fuzzies' with a layer mask. Once you're happy with the 'sharp version', exit quick mask mode, and save to a new alpha channel. The first one can now be deleted.

Since changing my car horn to gun shot sounds... people move out of the way much faster now.
