It was scanned by a lab, not myself.
That doesn't mean it's been well scanned. I had a roll of 35mm developed and scanned by Peak Imaging, which is one of the best specialist labs in the UK, and found I could do a far better job myself on my Epson V500, but manually scanning each image is very time consuming, and so can the subsequent processing be if there are any dust spots or scratches.
Peak Imaging's scanning isn't cheap, either. It's superior to what you will get from a High Street lab.

Yes, very true. Though overall, I was happy with the prints from this scan except for the fact that they were a little on the dark side. To make matters worse, when the first print (about 60 x 50cm) was displayed in an exhibition, it was hung up on a screen that had no light so it looked really dark as a result. I was not happy at all. Meanwhile, most other peoples' works had decent illumination from overhead lights on other screens. However, despite the dim conditions, it won Second Prize and also sold.
