Try this

I just noticed you wanted the shadow removed from the shoulder--I can fix that in 30 seconds if this is the general look you're after.

A couple of versions, 1 very contrasty, the other slightly softer.
Tried to soften the unsightly shadows but not completely remove them to keep a natural look
