Dodge/burn tips requested

I am trying to touch up an old photo. Way over exposed sky. I am playing with dodge/burn. Burning "shadows" and "midtones" doesn't do anything on these particular shades but "highlights" does what I am looking for. It darkens the sky, which is currently just a white glare, and brings out the clouds which were previously invisible.

Questions...
Is the desicion of whether to use "shadows", "midtones" or "highlights" range based on trial and error or is there a particular way to know what Gimp sees as "shadows", "midtones" or "highlights"?

Is the secret to creating a uniform (not blotchy) appearance, to keep "opacity" turn down very low?

You can also try using the Color menu and then selecting curves and play around with different color curves setting by dragging the cross on the graph there.
By the way could you make the stencil, if not I have a reply for you in the other thread you had the stencil question posted.
