Is it posible to critique from these photographs?

This is Norah, 17 months, I know she's not stacked, these are just a few snaps taken at the beach today. The beach is slightly sloping too, is it possible to give a critique from these or not? Thanks!

She's kind of stacked in this shot...

What is her background? Different if AKC showline or West German working lines or...

Good enough. :)

Slightly stretched female with OK withers, very level topline, good length and position of croup. She is balanced nicely with good angulation front and rear. Good pasterns, though she looks to be a bit east west in front. I would also like to see better feet. She has a sweet face, but I can't tell much about her ear set with them down in all of the photos. Her color could be richer and she is quite washed out.

Lisa, when you say "good angulation front", what are you looking at? The shoulder blades?

The angles of the shoulder bones (upper arm and scapula) from the elbow to the point of the shoulder (towards the chest) to the top of the withers.

Thanks for the replies, what does "a bit east west in front" mean? She is from a WL bitch and a SL dog...

It's when their front feet are pointed out to the sides a bit, instead of forward.

I have added some photos that show her ears, it was blowing a gale at the beach so she kept them close to her head to stop them blowing away!! I have to upload the photos separately, I can't seem to do them all on one post. Must be because I'm using my cellphone...
