Bitmap data extraction (matrix of matrix)

This is most likely a simple question for those who use Mathematica on
a semi-regular basis, but ...

I have a 512x512 matrix composed of 1x3 matrix elements, and want to
create a 512x512 matrix composed of a single value in the original 1x3

That doesn't look very well defined, so please let me explain further
in the hopes of clarifying what I am after.

It's a bitmap image file (512x512) and I want to extract a part of the
"raw" data for further processing. The raw data in the original file
consists of values for the red, green and blue (RGB). I would like to
create a matrix composed of only the *red* values across the 512x512

As a simplified example ....

Given RGB = {{1,0,1},{2,3,2},{4,6,4},{3,2,1}}

I would like to end up with R = {1,2,4,3}

Thank you for your time,

Mike K.
