    I was just testing something out and I want some opinions.

    These are the same but with different small adjustments. Which one do you think is better?

    They look a bit under exposed though.

    the colors of the tree and grass look best in 2,3

    4,5 look the worst to me.

    Is there something I can do on the camera to not need the PP adjustments?

    I would not auto nothing. Does not always work right. You are better off learning how to use teh curves sliders for the individual color channels. I have been a fan of the auto commands until recently when I began messing with curves and I am finidng that I am lovign them much more. Along with hue/ saturation, and brightness/contrast (if you are using cs3).

    For your original photo, I would have gone to Image, adjustments, exposure, and brought that up a bit and then looked to see what needs to be done. Your 2nd and third shots seems to have some pink in the sky. and the auto contrast looks like it just brouht out some detail in the deck.

    adjust your AV to suite your flash power, then adjust your shutterspeed for the ambient... if you would have shot @ f/8 instead of f/9.5 your flash probably would have exposed the pot correctly.
