I think you look pretty good.
I see that you are reaching for your toes, but as already mentioned, that is because your leathers are a little too long. You should beable to sink your weight into your heels so that they can anchor you in your tack. Due to this you've also lost your leg - but so what, you're doing a small fence and are just started out - aside from that I think you look pretty good.
I think you are just right in your tack, you aren't doing anything big and there is absolutely no need to be throwing yourself up and out of your tack while your horse is taking off at the base of the fence. You want to allow your horse to lift you out of your tack when his hind feet leave the ground, not before, not after.
You are just right. I love your hip angle, I love your release, I love that you are looking up and ahead.
