Take THAT scoobs! LOL While I'm posting anyway.......
Shorten up the draw a little bit, and ease off that bow arm a li'l bit...looks to be locked fairly hard. Everything behind the string looks good as long as the hold on the release is comfortable and consistant, overall structure looks very good! Shortening about 1/8-1/4" will make it look, and should feel/work better though. And.........check your tiller and timing......I can't quite see how exactly the cams are positioned, but the bow looks tilted forward way too much. IMHO Looks pretty good though!!!!!

Lots of improvement! :)

But there are more things that you might want to consider:

Don't bend your lower back, but be straight.

Lower your shoulders.

Don't wear an opaque eye patch---you need to let light in. Wear glasses (or sunglasses, outside), and gently put a piece of scotch tape so you get a "frosted" view out of your left eye.

Also, consider changing your grip on your release device. It looks like it wants to fly out of your hand.

Keep up the good work :),

Oh, I forgot one:

Make your bow elbow point behind you, and not at the floor! (All good recurve shooters do this.)
