I have another approach. I use Nik software's Silver Efex (Used for B&W conversion).
1) Select your colour image and run silver efex
2) In silver efex select the high structure predefined settings
3) Drag structure slider to 100%
4) Drag tonality protection sliders for shadow and highlight to the far right.
5) Apply.
6) Back in photoshop change the layers blending mode to luminosity.
7) Play with the layer opacity and layer masks to define how strong and where the effect is applied.

Forget where I first saw this approach but now use it a lot.
