Diana-

In your first sample photo, the H-5 quite clearly focused on the fence, and your daughter's face is heavily shadowed. I am guessing that perhaps you might have had the spot focus on, but were in a bit of a hurry to get the photo, that as you re-framed the photo, the spot focus worked at hit on the fence. Frank's advice is excellent keep the spot focus mark on your daughter and then crop as required to balance the photo.

A bit of fill flash would have helped those heavy shadows as well.
