Hi Eric. I think this is an excellent point. I too see this. It brings up local contrast. I think of it as micro-burning and dodging if that makes any sense. It increases texture, apparent sharpness, vibrance, clarity, etc.

I guess the trick is to set the white point and black point correctly so that the tonal range of the image is not greater than that of the final output.
