What went wrong with the below photo when I tried to increase the brightness
on the the darkest portions of the below photo? And what is a good way to
selectively lighten the dark shadow areas of a photo?

What I did
1. Created a 16bit tiff from a Canon CR2 RAW
2. Opened the photo in GIMP.
3. Made a new layer
4. Selected a dark part with the color selection tool which selected all the
darkest parts of the photo as can be seen below.
5. Opened Colors/Brightness-Contrast
6. Increased the Brightness

which yielded the below disastrous results. The selected parts just turned
solid gray.
