You're absolutely right... but the funny thing is that the actual negative has tons of tight detail, its just the scanner and the digital editing that are sucking all the quality out of the shots. when I scan at high enough dpi to catch the detail, i get all this digital noise from the scanner. Then trying to remove that makes the whole image a little blurry. I figured it looked better soft and clear then hard detailed and noisy. But the bottom line is - I need to print these and scan the prints, not the negatives. I feel like if these were printed the quality would really be there. So that's the next step I guess!
