Critique My Leg Position

Okay, so I've been riding with a new instructor, and I'm loving it so far! :)
Anyone care to critique my leg?

Lesson this past Tuesday:

(Not the greatest angle my apologies)

And for reference heres my leg a couple weeks before I left to old barn (I left about a month and a half ago)

(Sorry this photo is so bad)

See any improvement, critiques from my Tuesday lesson?
I personally see a big improvement, not only in my position but in my fitness as well. Three weeks with the new instructor and my leg muscles grew too big for my brand new boots :( and I also have way more stamina. I've already made friends and everyone is super friendly.
Thanks to anyone that critiques!

Your leg position looks fine to me - you should be able to draw a verticle line from your shoulder - hip - heel.....

A couple of comments tho your toes are pointed out slightly so concentrate on pointing your toes forward!!

Also your upper body is leaning forward which is caused because you are not sitting on your seatbones you are very much sitting on your 'girly bits' lol..... try wiggle your bum into the saddle to sit the back of your bum and then you will find your body is straight which will keep you balances and enable you to keep your toes pointing forward xx

Leg position good, but try to sink into those ankles more. Those heels could go down a bit more. It will improve your overall security.

Sink your weight down into your ankles! I see a huge improvement in your leg position between the old picture and the new ones but I would still like to see your heels down a bit more and your toes pointing a bit forward. You are sitting very forward with your upper body which is causing your leg to slide back just a TINY bit in the first picture. Overall you look quite good though.
