Excellent shot! To remove the background you could either draw a selection around the bits you don't want, feather it and then cut. create a new layer underneath and fill with black, then use the eraser to blend the edges. Or you could try using the dodge tool (if elements has one?) to gradually darken the areas you don't one until they are black.
