Second shot is rather dull and uninteresting.
First shot is burned out in the highlights. If taken in RAW mode, could be salvaged. Off-center placement of area of interest is a good rule, but it has gone a little too far here.

I use DPP, and yes I shot in RAW. How's this edit, it feels underexposed to me, but it also isn't blown out

I would try using Lightroom 3, I believe they are still offering a beta and it is INCREDIBLE. Second try is better, it needs something else I cant put my finger on, also a bit noisy.

Wow, that is very very good to know. But why exactly is LR better than DPP? I mean people buy it so I assume...

The version that is rendered darker is much better in my opinion. Then, you still have to do something about the composition, but I would not get hung up on that issue. Just remember to keep that in mind. Shoot, shoot and shoot! That's the only way to get good captures.
