Those are a great images.  Well framed and sharp.

It really is worth doing a even a little bit of image processing, it can really enhance an image.

I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of importing one of your pictures into Photoshop and did one quick pass of Gradient Xterminator and a quick curves and levels (total processing time less than 60 seconds) just to show you how a very quick bit of image processing can enhance an image.
