The small size of the images from your local film processor is a consequence of their scanner setting; 1.5 million pixels is just too inadequate. The low contrast is also a scanner setting which can be somewhat fixed in post processing, just as you have already done. Your fixed up example looks great, which implies that any underexposure or underdevelopment was not serious on that frame. Adding artificial detail to get more pixel resolution is not a good idea for film or digital.

But send your exposed film to North Coast Photo for development and their enhanced scans. Seventeen million full color pixel scans and the ability of film to compress highlights (differentiated from pure white) make very competitive digital renditions possible.

Slide film is another matter; you can project on a screen many extreme colors that just do not show on a computer screen.
