I can see some detail in the clouds (on this monitor, at least) but the top of your gazebo is way blown out and the shadows under the bushes are buried in the mud. My hunch is that your negative shows at least some detail in both of them, but the one-size-fits-all auto-levels in their scanner clipped on both ends.
