I use the 50% grey layer in soft light or overlay.

Hi my friend, it depends for what are u going to use the d&B. A good helper is a black and white layer + pushing down the curves if needed. It all depends what are you doing, skin, advertising, "illustrative look"...and so on.

I do a lot of my work in camera raw then after that I tend to use the 50% grey adjustment layer most of the time.

Fill a blank layer -on top- with 50% gray then set layer blend mode to softlight. Use soft, low opacity brush in white and/or black, white to dodge, black to burn.

thanks Aladdin,

Yes that is what I meant by the 50% layer.

If you want it a little more punchy you can also use Overlay layer mode rather than soft light.

I great thing about using this method is the control that it gives you, it saves on size as you don't need a duplicate layer of the image, you can adjust the opacity of the layer, you could even add a layer mask to it if you really wanted, basically the amount of control that it gives you is fantastic and it's all on a layer that you can delete if you want and start again and the original is not touched but then we all know or should know that we should never be working on the original layer destructively
