I fixed the link but am at a meet and can't comment right now. Hopefully some other lifters will chime in.

Looks good. From that angle I can't notice anything of concern.

First rep your hips started a hair low, causing the hips to rise a bit, but that was minor and fixed during the next 2 reps.

Thanks for the quick response. I always find it easier to get in a strong bottom position after the first rep..why is this? Also this might be a silly question but is lower back/erector doms/ soreness normal from deadlifting?..been hearing that if you have any soreness in your lower back from deadlifts your form is off. After my sets my glutes and usually a hamstrings are on fire but lately my lower back and I guess pretty much my whole back from traps down have been stiff and sore the day after. Should I be concerned or is the lower back just an umcomfortable spot to feel doms?

Lumbar doms can be very uncomfortable. If it's just muscle soreness and it goes away after a couple days, there is no cause for concern. You are using your entire back when you deadlift, especially during a conventional deadlift. Back fatigue and soreness can be expected.

As far as your form, it looks decent. One thing I noticed was that your feet are inside your knees. If this works for you, then great. Personally, I like to have my feet about hip-width so that all my joints are basically in a straight line perpendicular to the floor. I feel like this really helps me generate leg drive and break the bar off the floor with explosive force.

This narrow stance with feet slightly out seems to be most comfortable for me at the moment. I've experimented briefly with different stances..I'm sure it will change and evolve as I continue lifting though. Thanks for the response
