    You are leaning back. Release arm not in line with your arrow. Makes me think you DL is long. Pointing your bow hand fingers at the target does not give you a relaxed grip.

    My only suggestion would be to relax your fingers. I used to shoot with the extended finger grip, but as I practiced, my shots would be all over the place dancing from left to right. Ever since I switched to the relaxed-finger grip, where your knuckles are at a 45 degree from where you grip the bow, my accuracy and precision has increased tremendously. Such as below. Good luck

    Add a 1/2” draw length, straighten spine, bring right toes in a little so your foot is square with the target, relax your fingers. When I relax my hand and my fingers come down, there seems to be one more level of relaxed after that and the bow just squishes into my hand and pin movement almost stops

    I might add that the short draw length makes that front shoulder come up closer to the chin like it appears to be in that image.
