    I take a lot of darker action pics because I can't realy get the park before it gets dark. I'm still new to photog and editing so I'm wondering if this can be done a better way. Could someone edit the original for me and let me know the steps you used? thanks! Any tips would be GREAT! i'm buying a flash soon hopefully that will help too.

    Try bracketing next time, getting good exposure in camera can make the difference later when your post processing.

    I know catching the action and bracketing will be tricky but with a little practice and predicting the action and timing your shots will help get you the shots you will be more pleased with.

    A few more suggestions: raise your ISO to deal with the low light and action, this will allow you more range of choice with you shutter speed and f/stop. Switching to AI SERVO will also help get your focus where you want it.
