I'm not an expert by any means, but I see your feet are line up different in both pictures. In the first picture your left foot is a little back and in the second picture that look square.

If you look at any photos nutz & boltz puts up their feet are just like your feet. Keep your arm straight when you draw and then settle in and don't push with your bow hand. The bones will line up and give you a longer draw which should help you not lean back. See if that helps.

Definitely leaning back. Your sternum is over your right pocket/foot. Need to use that doorway and wedge yourself against it. You'll likely need a little shorter mods.

You need to straighten your bow arm more and lift it up so that its level and you need to stop leaning back, your dl may be a little long. Nuts and bolts helped me with my form. If he chimes in listen to him. some thing you can try to help the leaning back is find a door frame and wedge your right foot, right ankle, knee, hip, ribs and armpit against the door frame. Then get a new pic taken and hopefully nuts and bolts will be around and can help you from there. I think once you do the door frame trick your dl will be a lil long.

Opening your stance will make the bow seem longer. Have someone TELL you if you are leaning back before snapping the pic.
A wider stance will be a little better, but your really leaning back.
On top of having the person tell you if your leaning back, have them let you know if the arrow is level before snapping the pic.

i just got my e-35 with a 29" dl
Find an outside corner of a wall.



WEDGE the edge of your right shoe,
your ankle, lower leg, knee, thigh, hip, waist
and
the ENTIRE RIGHT SIDE of your rib cage TIGHT to the outside corner of the wall..

and ESPECIALLY the RIGHT armpit,
TIGHT to the EDGE of the outside corner of the wall.

NEW photo.

IGNORE your peep sight, when WEDGED/GLUED to the outside corner of the wall.

DO NOT lean your neck back, and try to hit your anchor points.

MAKE sure that your LEFT PIT is FORWARDS of your left ankle.
THIS PART is your MAIN problem.




REACH for the target.
LOOK at your bow arm...the upper arm.

NOTICE how your BOW arm is downhill?
NOTICE how your BOW ARM elbow is BELOW shoulder height?

LIFT the bow arm ELBOW all the way up to shoulder height.

DO NOT leg your upper arm point DOWNHILL.

GET your UPPER arm LEVEL, DEAD LEVEL
and push the riser as FAR AS POSSIBLE from your face.

MOVE your LEFT ARMPIT FORWARDS of your LEFT ANKLE.

Put 75% of your WEIGHT on top of your LEFT ANKLE.

Another example of standing against a vertical reference.

BEFORE...



Now, standing against an outside corner of a wall, or a door frame (trim)



So,
the SECOND picture,
the arrow is NOT level.


So,
I suggest that YOU get a LINE LEVEL
and scotch tape the level to your ARROW,
so that a second person can tell you when YOUR bow hand is HIGH enough,
so that the arrow is LEVEL.

From the looks of the lean, you may need more than that. Just depends on what you look like when you fix your posture.
