The second photo is very good. The first you are too much to the front of the dog and that tends to make the front look big and the rear look light. Your dog may or may not toe out in front, but when stacking you can adjust the legs so that the dog appears to stand straight in the photos. The only complaint about the side photo is that Aiden is looking away from the camera. You want them looking slightly in the direction of the camera (not right at it, but not a true profile).

Masculine male with flat withers and a topline that could be smoother. Good placement of a croup that should be longer. Very good angulation front and rear, but his upper arm should be longer. Excellent underline, good feet and pasterns though he does appear to toe out (stand east west) in front. He has very good brown color and dark pigment, but I would like to see a richer black overlay.

I would also move the hind leg that is forward back a little bit.
