Default RAW help

i am also new to editing RAW. I have photoshop cs5 with camera raw editor.
i have been using photoshop to edit photos for years, but always in a destructive method. i love the possibilities with editing RAW, but like i said, i am new to it and would welcome some help. for instance, with the first photo of the girls on the bench, i made edits, but still have the original dng file.

if anyone is so daring, or helpful, here is a link to a zip file containing both the original dng file and the dng with my edits. if an experienced RAW editor would like to show me how good this photo could really look, post it back, and give some info about what they did to achieve it, that would be awesome!

Picking your own AF point is actually much better then letting the camera pick them for you. That could be one of the reasons the dog shot focused on the wrong part. The 5 close in AF point works well, but picking your own will give you even better results and control.

What's so nice about the shots is how much fun you are having. Your enthusiasm really shines through. Agree with other posters, you pick the focus point.
