Do my tall boots look too short?

I think they do but are they bad enough to buy a new pair right now?

They look a smidge too short to me, but not bad enough to run out and buy a new pair right away.

I think you'd only notice if you were really looking at it.

Yeah, they look about an inch to an inch and a 1/2 too short.

Not the biggest problem in the world, but if the OP has the money... then I would get a new pair and remember to get taller than necessary to account for the drop. Such a common mistake for people to buy tall boots that fit them perfectly on the spot, not realizing they all drop an inch+ after a while. :)

The hardest part isn't finding what we need to be, it's being content with who we are.

Yup. A taller boot would make your lower leg look longer, and most of us crave that

if it fits your foot there is no reason to buy a new one :)
