Critique better pictures

This is my first german shepherd and we do schutzhund. She is 10 months old in these pictures. I doubt conformation will be in her future but I've been wondering how she would be critiqued at this age and then later once she matures of course. I tried my best taking these pictures by myself. I'm completely new to this and want to know more about conformation.

Very pretty female that looks fairly mature until you look at her face. That is still all puppy. Flat withers, but otherwise very nice topline with good length and position of croup. Good to very good angulation in front though her upper arm should be longer. Very good angulation in the rear. I would like to see a bit tighter foot and she appears to stand a bit east/west in the photos. Good color though I would like to see a darker face.

What does it mean when you say she stands east/west?

oh ok thanks her feet naturally go like that most of the time right now at least but she is still a puppy. I'm just learning some of this, excuse my stupid questions.

Everyone who knows about german shepherds that I've met say she is a red sable. I personally only knew she was a sable when I got her and didn't know there were different types of sables.
