Re: Shadows

Try the magnetic lasso. This should be pretty easy considering that the belt has such a well-defined edge.
Also, the shadow is pretty light, so maybe even the curves tool could work. (Haven't tried it, but should be very easy, as well.)

Re: Shadows

Using the Pen Tool I selected the shadow and then cloned in the background. Could have been a little more careful with my selection.
