I like your position in the first two pics. The only thing I see in the first pic, is you are providing a nice release at the expense of coming a little too much out of the saddle. If you extend your elbows more to allow just your hands to go forward, you bum can stay closer to the tack.
In the flat canter pic, your hands need to come up with slightly shorter reins. Heels need to relax down. Right now there is tension somewhere in your legs forcing your heels to come up a smidge.
Trot flat pic, he's just turning 5, but it might be time to start working some half halts into his training. In that pic your position is correct but not effective. Horse is not supple or relaxed onto the bit. I'd like to see the flash removed and working more from behind. Right now he's going through the motions and taking in the scenery.
That's all I've got.
