DJ, here is another tonal adjustment procedure to try.

After opening an image, duplicate the layer,
enter Image > Apply Image
In the "Apply Image" screen accept the defaults, make sure preview is selected and play with the Blend Modes and Opacity.

* Some modes "Color Burn & Multiply" darken while others lighten

Apply Image does some wild and wonderful things but for our purpose it reinforces the "Background Copy" image on the "Background" image with unlimited adjustment.

This procedure works with Color or B&W but if your going to desaturate it's probably best to do that first.
P.S. You can still play with curves if required.

Thanks for passing on this tip, DJ. I get so many dark photos and have been struggling to simplify the process. This will be a big help.
