So you're riding as a Dressage rider? Then you need to sit up, stretch your legs down and sit on your seat bones instead of being in a half seat.
Thumbs on top, right now they're pointing too far forward. I think their position is great, but would be better once you are sitting deeply :)
Eyes up, open that chest up and stretch with your toe pointing as straight as you can.
I don't know if it's just the photo or if it were true.. but it looks like you are bracing in your forearms? Try to keep them as supple as possible and remember to not lean on the reins.
Better position in the second photo, you were just looking down at your horse :p Don't do that as you can see, your seat is compromised and you could easily pitch off.
Overall they were minor fixes, you guys are doing great!
