Sorry, maximum file size is very limited with posting annotated images. Here are the main observations I’ve made. The attachment shows the most significant (i think).

Your streamline looks very good.
It’s hard to tell if there is much head lift when you breath, but hips do seem to be lower than back of head from the side view.
Timing of breathing looks good.
You can see in some frames from the front view that the wide angle of your elbow causes your leg to kick outside of an ideal streamline (in reaction). You may consider a ‘tighter’ elbow bend to maintain streamline and maximise power, and minimise hip/leg sway.
Looks like you have great coordination as well (i.e. no overtaking arm-action).
End of stroke looks good. Your elbow is back and alongside your body and your forearm/hand is vertical.
