My workflof is as follows:

- duplicate original picture...
-get the right colurs you want in curves
- on the duplicate picture i made it b&w in channel mixer. Adjustments-channel mixer. Push the monochrome button. then play with the channel buttons there...try to get more shadows and more light without the picture looking wierd(overexposed or underexsposed)

Hi Gerry: I know this is a very old post, I just decided to use your workflow, as written above, but I got a doubt here. When you check your monochrome button the pictures turns to B W, OK... After that, do you change your blending mode or what? How do you get color into the picture again? The only thing I could do in order to put color back was change the blend mode to soft light, but the results are not that good. I'll appreciate your feedback... Thanx

Try setting it to "Luminosity" and see if that does more like you think it ought.
