Congrats. It's a nice shot. Probably not the best subject matter for anyone to judge your processing (beyond confirming that there are no streaks, spots, etc. -- at least in this one frame). Also, the fact that you adjusted contrast and color balance after scanning doesn't help. You've introduced too many variables.
One thing I found helpful was to scan my own C-41 processed film alongside a lab processed film of the same type and subject matter. And I mean scan the whole negative -- sprockets and all. I placed them side by side on the scanner -- three frames from one film on top, and three more on the bottom. Then I took a high-res scan of the six frames with the "no color correction" option checked and compared. It's hardly scientific, but it might help.
