    The corner visible in the shadow distracts the heck out of me.

    I'm a disaster when using the clone tool, but maybe you'll have better luck with it! haha

    Your lighting was too hard. Better to use a larger light source. Looks almost like flash on camera. I had a fiddle with your image and have attached it below.

    Those edges are really "rough" on the B&W, try using a soft brush to smoothe out those edges..

    my guess is he used the pen/lasso tool then applied a mask....the only thing i would do different is i would have feathered the edge a little before applying the mask. or go back over the edges with a soft brush...just my .02

    I know you want editing advice, but I'd have chosen a different starting point to make editing easier.

    If you want to eliminate the shadow, use a ring flash, or two makeshift lights on either side of the lens. A homemade light ring from home depot can do the trick, too, and then you have a real ringlight. I'd also use a paper backdrop, in one continuous strip, to remove any corners from the picture in the first place. The perspective is also important, because it makes the bottle look weird unless it's a dead-on shot.

    Those three things would remove the need for hardcore editing, and give you an excellent spot to start from changing it into B&W. It would probably convert right into B&W without any real work on your part.
