        Actually, the lab did its job. The prints are supposed to show the
information on the film. You should have noticed that the frames that
did not get enough exposure started to look pretty muddy and grainy. If
you want a print to be printed dark, you have to tell the lab. It is
still far better to "print down" a properly exposed neg than to work
with a thin, underexposed neg, so I would never "bracket down" with neg
