You need to sit further down in the saddle, with your back straight. Point your heels further down and pull your shoulders back. Don't get too far ahead of your horse.

You look pretty good in the first pic. You let the horse do the jumping part. You're just enough out of the saddle, lower leg secure, back flat. (maybe a smidge arched)

Second pic looks like you're trying to do more than you need for a cross rail. You're jumping ahead and your lower leg has slipped back. Maybe practice some grids that combine both fence heights on either a bounce or a two stride to work on keeping steady over the fences regardless of the height you're jumping.
