post-editing this shot

  • Hi,

    I am relatively new to photography and I have not had the time and opportunity to learn Photoshop. I usually do a little basic editing on my iPhoto and sometimes PS Elements 11 but, I really need some help perfecting this photo I took today for a local newspaper.

    Can anyone help me please? I am visualizing getting background "cleaned up" but don't know how.
    I used Nikon D4s and Nikon 70-200mm at SS 1500 ISO 400 F/500 during cloudy condition.

    Thanks in advance!
