Good read. This picture made me feel good. I think I have my starting positioned lock. I knew not to have my hips too low, but this just helped fortify my setup.

Sometimes when I do multiple rep sets I have a tendency to force my hips too low on subsequent reps due to paranoia that they are too high.

I tried adjusting my deadlift form after reading that, and I'm questioning starting so far over the bar. if you look at the pictures on the left, the bar is under the middle back. I felt like when I went so far over the bar the lift was all low back. I think I'm going to try a happy medium and get my shoulders just over the bar, and still keeping the hips fairly high, but not so much that they are not part of the lift.
