Adjustments to an image don't take effect on an image that is 600ppi. When you add an adjustment layer over the image, it will stay as long as the layers arent merged, but when you merge the adjustment layer with the image layer, the adjustments go away.

Zoom in to 100% to judge the effect.

My guess is that you have a noisy image, and are zoomed out and seeing the preview applied to the downsampled image.

Hmm strange, I think you are right and it was a zoom thing. My guess is it was a cache issue having to do with Photoshop's new engine interacting with my dated computer. Thanks for the help.
