are you using the auto focus feature? macro works alot better using a tripod and full manual, some good shots in there though, the brain pic is good

No tripod(don't have one anyway) all were taken with macro setting on auto focus with lens against the glass to steady and then playing with colours on computer

Camera is a Finepix s4200 24x wide zoom bought it for Xmas just starting to learn to use it now :redface:

Macro = 1:1
Most of those shots are out of that ball park. You also need something to keep the camera still, too much motion blur. Of course the subject also needs to be still as well so turning all pumps off for corals and asking fish nicely to stay still tends to work well.
