Create high resolution hillshades

I am trying to map small ridges from bathymetric data. These ridges are between 0.5 to 1 meters high, 1 meters wide and on average 30 meters long. The background data is very accurate and has centimeter resolution.

I have tried to create different types of hillshades to be able to visualize the ridges, but I have been unsuccessful. I want even the smallest ridges to be clearly visible.

I have here attached two images, showing the exact same area. As you can see the area is a couple of hundred meters wide.
The first image shows what I would like to reproduce. The second image shows only the closest resolution I have been able to obtain. My hillshades are very grey in colour and blurry.

Would be awesome if someone could help with this.

Kind regards,
