Re: Tonal Contrast

Not the Same but a Technik to get more Contrast...

Open your Image
Press V
2 x STRG+J (duplicate Background Layer 2 Times)
STRG+I (Invert the Layer) on the Top Layer
Surface Blur to set the Contrast
Gaussian Blur to eliminate Hot pixels..(small Radius)
Merged the Top Layer with the the other duplicate
Desaturate the Layer
Shadow/Highlight and raise only the Midtone-contrast...
Change the Modus to Overlay

Re: Tonal Contrast

RedRum I think one step is missing

2 x STRG+J (duplicate Background Layer 2 Times)
STRG+I (Invert the Layer) on the Top Layer
Surface Blur to set the Contrast
Gaussian Blur to eliminate Hot pixels..(small Radius)
Merged the Top Layer with the the other duplicate

Whatfor do you merge top layer with layer under when opacity of this layer in your attempt is 100% and blending mode normal? I think that blending mode of top layer should be changed to linear light (or something) and opacity set to 50%/

Re: Tonal Contrast

The blending mode should be "Vivid Light" ([Shift]+[Alt]+[V]), that way the image turns into gray when you invert it (which is necessary if you want to use some of the contrast modes to sharpen).
