I recently received my first scans back from a film photo lab and I'm happy with the results of many of the photos. Especially considering I haven't picked up a film SLR in about 18 years and the camera I was using was given to me by my father and I had never used it before. I did put it in manual to try to control some aspects of the shots. I must say I really enjoy the prettiness of the photos. No digital darkroom, just hope that your settings were correct and you were in focus!
