Feathering is sound advice - another technique to try when subtle changes are required and you don't fancy the Dodge/Burn tool...
Add a new layer
Edit > Fill > 50% Grey
Change Blend Mode to Overlay.
Now use the paint brush, drop the opacity and flow to a low number (play around to see what works best for you) and paint in black or white to darken or lighten specific parts of the image.
When you're finished, flatten and Save As
Can be quite effective for making localised contrast adjustments.
