The first thing people need to find out is that Brightness/Contrast are destructive controls, and should never be used. The second is that Adjustment Layers are Adobe's greatest gift to photographers. You have a technique for controlling upper and lower tones without using Curves? I'd love to hear about it.

Agreed, it is much better. I'd suggest staying away from brightness/contrast, nothing there you can't do in levels. If you can't get what you want moving the middle grey pointer, I've got a technique that gives more control over upper and lower tones. Let me know and I'll write it up.
