Fun With RAW

I took some RAW shots this morning so I would have something to "play" with. I was really upset when I got home and I could not open them in PSE 5.0. I found out that I needed a "plug-in". This was downloaded and problem solved. I had hit the car wash on the way home from shooting the birdies and had quite a wait in line, so a little switch of lenses and just had to wait for my turn. I took quite a few shots, but most didn't turn out until the van got towards the end of the wash and the outside was in site.
This shot is before any modification (other than cropping in PSE):
mode=auto (no flash) ~ f/7.1 ~ ISO-200 ~ 1/200 ~ 35mm
After editing (increasing contrast, light, black, and just general playing around):
