You have a beautiful base that will give you lots of room to move up, nice heel with a nicely flexed ankle, although you could angle the outside of the stirrup forward a bit so that the stirrup is perpindicular too your horse's side.
You back is very flat and head and eyes looking up, and you are using a very nice short crest release keeping contact but giving him plenty of room to stretch his neck. However, you are jumping ahead of your horse in all three pictures and laying down on his back. It feels like you are getting out of his way but in reality you are burdening his front end. Try some gymnastics to work on a light fold of the upper body and allowing your horses front end to come up underneath you and gently close your hip angle. This should be an easy fix for you because of your solid base.
