You have improved so, so much - you should be very proud of yourself!
I'd still like to see your leg underneath yourself some more. You really need to support your weight with your heels & your lower leg. It'll make the jump so much more comfortable for you, it'll bring everything together so neatly. Picture your lower leg as like your seat belt. In the first photo you're a little high and you've moved ahead of the center of the saddle slightly. I think that you'll find that once you get your heels down this will be easily fixed. However, also remember to go with the horses motion - not ahead of it.
In the second photo it looks like you have a bit more contact with the horse, however, you are still slightly ahead of the horses motion. Again, feel the way the horse moves. Your release is good, but, I'd love to see your horse stretched out a little more. The horse has quite a long, reaching neck over the fence. So, give him/her the opportunity to do so.
