Default Macro Algae

just a couple of kind of neat shots I snapped last night of some macro algae in a saltwater tank.

Do you use Photoshop or some editing program that has levels? I think these shots are almost there and only need a bit more "punch." This they could get by increasing the contrast. Now that I'm thinking contrast, maybe saturating some of the colors a bit would also help.

Once you do start, you'll end up addicted to the possibilities within your photos.
