​Perhaps if people wanted something less basic, they could try something like the Sven Stork Interactive Luminosity Masks extension. It is free, and works with post CC2014.2 versions of Photoshop, and can create a Hue Saturation layer based on tonal range, or saturation range. Or create Curves or Levels layers based on the same criteria. Or just output a selection or alpha channel. People will probably be more familiar with the Tony Kuyper version, but I think you have to pay for that one.
