Clarification needed

Good observation Danny...are you talking below of a layer mask or a selection? I assume layer mask.

It's not unusual for an image to need color or toning adjustments
in specific areas, not overall. This is my I approach to these

  • Add the appropriate adjustment layer (Levels, Curves, Hue/Sat, etc.)

  • Apply the adjustment to correct/enhance the areas that need it.

usually results in messing up areas that don't need fixing.)

  • Ctrl + I (to invert the mask and "undo" the effect)

  • Airbrush with white in desired areas to (again) reveal the

layer's effect. Airbrushing allows you to control the degree of
application depending on need. (Paint black to "undo" if you overdo
it.) You can fine tune by tweaking the adjustment layer's opacity
or trying different layer blend modes.
