You're rotating your pelvis backwards, hollowing your back out. Rotate your pelvis forwards so that your back isn't arched. Don't force your heel down, think of stretching into your heel, not forcing it down; if you force it, your foot will come forwards as a result. Bend those elbows, shorten your rein, close your fingers and get those thumbs on top! Learn how to feel your diagonal rather than doing an obvious look down to check it. Don't let your upper body get too far ahead of the motion, if you do and your horse spooks or does a nasty stop, you'll do a great impression of a lawn dart ;)
All in all, looking good :)
