How did you convert this to digital? Agree it's too bright, but I doubt there are blown highlights.

I just got the lab to send me the files on dropbox

Then I'd try to rescan it. Adjust the preview on the scanner until it looks OK. If you dont have access to a scanner, but a camera and a macro lens then try that instead.

I used film from the early seventies until I switched mostly to digital around 2005 and never had any serious problem with negativ film and just using the build in light meter for "easy" exposures. I was careful were I metered the exposure though.

If you're using a K1000 and the build in meter then I'd start by making sure it's accurate. Compare it with another camera. The one in the phone should do if that's what you have.
