You are trying to do we could be more helpful.

You need to understand that tone curves do not need to be the classic lazy s that pumps contrast.

Sometime you can invert that s to good effect. Or use a bow curve or a double curve.

Using layers and masks you can put different curves on different parts of an image.

The more powerful tools are in the Shadow/Highlight dialog or in Bridge/ACR
