Of the photos you posted, this shows the best equitation: Your base of support is out of the saddle the correct amount and you are not ahead of his motion. However, it could be improved by lifting your upper body up and away from the neck. The amount of fold in your hip in this photo would be appropriate for a much higher fence.

I find that this particular habit is often the result of stiffness/tenseness in the arm - when you move your hand and arm forward to release, your upper body goes with it because your elbow and shoulder aren't relaxed enough to allow your arm to move completely indepenently. On the flat, practice reaching up toward his ears while in two point, leaving your upper body still. That will give you an idea of how it should feel over fences.

Hope that helps.

You look great :) Like others said your stirrups are probably a little too short, but I shouldn't really say anything mine are considered "too long" by "American standrads" (I learned to ride in Russia). A trainer here told me that if I am still comfortable and secure in the saddle, and not interfiering with the horse, that I should be alright, she also said that she watched the world sj championships and I rode just like the Swedish girls, lol. So, if you are comfortable & secure & not intefiering with your horse, then don't worry TOO much about it.
Also, have you thought about an automatic release? Personally I am not a fan of the crest release, personal opinion, I was taught to jump with an automatic release. You look like a strong enough rider to use the automatic rellease.
Hope this helps :)

I don't think it's a great example because it is not a big picture but the way she is dropping her hands thats an automatic release

Aw i know what your talking about now after seeing the idea of the picture.
Aw kk. Il give it a go and see how it works... Only thing is does that put you in a less secure position if the horse stumbles or anything on landing because your hands are so low?
