OK - got my reprints from the alternative lab and there is a distinct difference.
I had a set of 7X5's from 35mm and a set of 8X8's from the Hasselblad reprinted.
The prints from my regular lab, side by side, appear far too contrasty and loose a lot of detail into the shadows - infact they are generally too dark.
The prints from the Hasselblad seem to display the same characteristics, apart from the new prints are MUCH sharper and show considerably more detail.
So I'm going to ask them to reprint a lot of them today.
Anyone got any hints and tips - I dont want to fall out with them (which wont happen I'm sure becuase I get on with them well)

It would be interesting to know if the labs you have used are printing them on a digital lab or analogue.
Film's not dead, it's just got a negative image.
