It looks great. The plants look wonderful. Maybe a little hardscape, some rocks or wood, to add structure and some stronger compositional elements would be nice. Just because you have some algae doesn't necessarily mean your lights are too much...most new tanks go through some algae phases. It looks like you have a lot of plant growth, that's the key. Others know more about avoiding algae than I do, I'm satisfied if the algae is minimal and the plants dominate.

Looks terrific. Not many fish yet you said. Are you dosing NPK and traces? You said you're new to the hobby. Maybe checkout Rexgrigg.com for a lot of info all in one place...
