To much bend in your elbow.
Looks like the draw length is to short for you.

Looks like you could probably roll you hand down a little more in your grip too where you get more contact with your pad.

you you could put more hand on the handle.

also i personaly beliv that the elbow should be locked. lean against a wall with a bentarm holding you up. now a locked arm which is easier?

Straighten the arm a little, but don't lock it. Draw looks 1/2" long to me, shorten the release if you can ... elbow is high. Heel the bow with your hand a little more ... wrist looks stiff.

That's enough for today :D

I totally agree with jreese. Your grip needs to be more pad ( meat) of hand to rest on grip of bow. What we shooters call bone against bone.

hmm...so grip should be touching my palm how??
The grip should run down from between your thumb and index finger to the middle of where your palm connects to your wrist.

That would be a great person to learn from! The new form may feel a little weird at first, but eventually it becomes almost natural.
