This is not exact science but rather a trial and error process. You think to yourself " What this image needs now? It is a bit bland and has some washed colors so I want to increase the contrast of the midtones. Let's do that by adding a Black&White adjustment layer set to Overlay blend mode. Hmm, is to strong. Let's change the blend mode to Soft Light and lower the opacity. Better now. " and so on. Remember that all the adjustment layers and blend modes and masks are merely tools, servants of your imagination. The tools you use and the way you use them are unimportant in comparison with the results achieved. Focus on what you want to achieve and worry less about the techniques used by others or the complexity of the various tools.
