That first photo is awesome, try increasing the fstop to 14-18 range and see if it gives you better depth.

I agree with the F stop needing to be a little higher...first shot is out of focus...nice subject matter though!

That coral is very nice! I have a tiny piece like it but not as colorful as yours. Hopefully it will color up.

With macro shots try a smaller aperture. To keep the shutter speed high enough to avoid movement raise the ISO

Look amazing, except for the red bugs that is...bummer
