    Hands should be higher and usually people put their thumb around.
    Pur, Jeff, Jam and Filmy would be able to give you better advice.

    I've always used my thumbs as hooks to help flare out my lats. Keep your chest out and your chin up, might help your posture.

    OP is doing ok, needs to stand up straight and bring the thumbs, around back, and remember in a rear lat spread to spike a calf and show the hamstrings...kinda like this

    its hard to see your actual path of the pose from a picture. You need to kick your shoulders up and back, hands on your hips and flare out your lats and sit back.

    thats my shitty lat spread, but i always took pride in my posing (I've won best posing in 2 nationals)

    Tighten the chest, suck in the stomach, and pull your lats out until it hurts. I use my thumbs on my hips, some (like timber) put their hands out in front.

    My suggestion would be to watch video's of competitors doing it the right way and just mimic them. I modeled my routine after Ed Corney's. he was smooth and graceful, and that helps pull out the poses properly.

    Everyone except one posted their own pose. What's the point in posting someone else's pose?

    I'm sure the TS can look on the net to find the same lat spread photos.
