For this picture, use a very low (but not 0) threshold. The result won't be perfect but since I assume you will scale it down afterwards, that should be enough.

Otherwise, given the very low contrast between the background and the subject in some places, that will be a layer mask, a fuzzy brush, some care and lots of time Smile
