Did you process this using an HDR filter? If you cannot reduce the haloing ("ghosting") in that filter by reducing the radius oriented sliders during processing, you could use the advanced layer blending technique I often use for my clients (described below).
In Photoshop, load the final image you have in the bottom most layer. Directly above that layer, load a version of that same image with much less (minimal or no) processing. The minimal image should not show any haloing, so it could just be the original before the effect was added. You can then select both layers, and go to Edit -> Auto Align Layers.. - > Auto.
This will make sure that both of your layers are registered properly with one another.
Now, select your top minimally-processed layer, r-click in an empty space next to its layer name and select "Blending Options". At the bottom of that dialogue box you will see two sliders. In the "This Layer" slider, you can hold ALT and split the BLACK slider handle in half by dragging it right. Then hold ALT and split the "Underlying Layer" WHITE slider by dragging it left. Now play around with these split sliders until you eliminate as much of the offending artifacts/haloing as you desire.
What you are doing is controlling a more precise way for these two layers to merge together. Don't worry if your image looks too flat or non-dynamic. Just focus on eliminating the halo part you don't like. Then lastly, select that top minimally-processed layer, hold ALT and click the "add layer mask button" (below that window). Simply use a lower opacity white soft-brush and paint over the mask where you want to erase "just" the parts you don't like.
This will reduce some of that HDR-like embossed effect, but it has the potential to produce a more nature high dynamic range image. This advanced technique also works for images that were over sharpened, since a similar haloing often occurs there as well.
I hope this helps!
