Hello Charles!

congratulations for your pictures! I have never seen this alga in the Mediterranean sea. Maybe it is a coldwater form?
I prefer the first two pictures. (Up to now I did'nt use the oblique brightfield. Maybe I should do it!)
What objective did you use?

The "oblique" shots are with a 10X and 20X Olympus S Plan Apo.

Superb portraits. The brightfield is especially nice.
