Using exposure causes this. Its a pain in the arse!

Either don't use exposure or in Photoshop marquee select your mask, invert and the hit delete. This will remove the grey and some but not much of the shadow. The more you hit delete, more of the shadow is removed.

I looked up in the Environment and Effects panel - "no exposure control" is selected... or maybe i should search in the vray settings somewhere? could you explain more detailed, please? thanks :]

No, it's a normal camera, but the lights and materials are V-ray ones.
