Perhaps if we better understood what...

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
