Levels Adjustment Layer is one of the next steps which helps in getting good shapes of Whites, Greys and Blacks. Here you get three pointers on single slider. The extreme left slider is for adjusting dark pixels of your Photograph, Middle one is to adjust Midtones and right one is for Bright pixels. Move around with these and see how you like the overall configuration of Levels. Levels are separately discussed on our blog earlier and you may want to check that.
