She looks like she is trying to get a bit more rein from you because of how tight they are...Yes you want contact, but I think you have a tad too much. This might be the reason that she stuck her head out instead of dropping her head and basculing properly....?
IMO, your stirrups look more hunter/jumper-ish then eventer length. (I am not an eventer though so not completely sure about this.) Your leg looks like it has slid back a little bit. This picture angle also makes it look like your arms are literally resting on the mares neck. Your 2-point looks good otherwise.
Kudos for the boots as extra protection on a green horse.
If you want a "better" critique, a square side on picture is better then an angle like this. Can't see what your leg is truely doing, nor your bum and back. :)
