    Your chest could use some thickness, and your lat insertions look to be really high, so like Noel said you'll have to overcome that. I certainly dont think your shoulders overpower anything.

    As an aside, you're really jacking up that rear lat spread. I thought maybe it was just when the picture was taken, but I noticed your avatar is the same way, even though its a different picture. Dont lean your head forward or tuck your chin down into your chest. It flattens your traps out, and robs you of selling your back off to a row of judges who are already seated below you.
    That it will never come again is what makes life sweet.

    One arm dumbbell rows to the hip , one arm cable rows, the lats will drop as you get more size, good call on the posing Holy

    This is a great suggestion, especially if you let your arm really stretch on the bottom of the movement.

    I think you have a really good base to start with. I don't think your shoulders are overpowering.

    I'd like to see you bring up your legs more and yes on chest thickness.

    First off very good improvements in the past 2 years. You look good in your standing relax pose. Some more back width and thickness would help your physique. You have really good shape and symmetry. I would just keep doing what u are doing to add some more size overall and maintain your pleasing lines.

    Thank you !! Thats the plan.. taking the next 9 months to make improvements before possibly stepping on stage again.
