Only just noticed this, I've been working on a new megapack since May because I thought this had died.

A quick example of the type of thing I would do with the clone tool using the cut above.
For that pic I would do a half and half, extract the top and pen tool the bottom. In general though the same as before, just get in to all of the gaps with the pen and if it looks a bit holey fill in the gaps with a touch of clone stamp and history brus...
This took less than 10 minutes, although I've been using the pen tool for ten years now. It does takes a bit of getting used to with controlling the strokes.
Personally, I find it quicker and easier to just zoom in to 1200% and go at pictures like this with the pen tool. It's not the best but it's better than faffing around for half an hour trying to clean up dirty extractions.
