I'm with Pat, try shooting slides. The problem with prints is that you're at the mercy of whatever the machine developing your prints thinks you want. If use a polarizer, it's likely the machine will compensate for what you were trying to accomplish and lighten the shot. This doesn't happen with slides.
Most modern flatbed scanners have a slide scanner built in that gives acceptable results.
If you cant shoot slides, then try scanning the negatives instead of prints.
