very interesting and helpful read for ACR users

the link below explains that the using the "defaults" in ACR 3x are not usually the most acurate way of interpreting your image in camera raw.

here is one of the more important points..

Leave Exposure at 0. If you find that you consistently need to move the Exposure slider in one direction, itís time to check your metering (for example, a cameraís nominal ISO 100 may be closer to ISO 75 or ISO 125). If thatís the case, itís better to dial in the appropriate exposure compensation on your camera.
Leave the White Balance setting at As Shot, so that Camera Raw can adapt to different white balances.
hope this gives you a start to more acurate results from your camera raw shots with photoshop and lightroom
