Need help with a shadow on a pic!

I took my friends wedding pictures this weekend and in some of them there is shadows. I think maybe it had to do with some other people there taking pics while i was. Could that have been it? Because it is just some of them. I used my speedlight and bounced the light off the ceiling. Anyways..Is there anyway I can get rid of the shadow? I have Photoshop but I am not the best at doing stuff like that on it. Here is one of the pictures that has the shadow.

You could try the heal or patch tool to see if you can remove the shadow.

I had a play. It is on my private flickr. I'll take it down after awhile.


I selected the shadow with the magic wand and did a levels adjustment and a color balance adjustment. I had to do it in two sections because the floor shadow was different than the white shadow. Then I cloned the edge of the selection to blend it in. It was a quick and sloppy job but I think it is possible to do with a bit of time.
