Look at you go !
It seems to me that your poles are shorter than mine. Are your arms 90 degrees with hand under basket?
It seems to me that you lift your hand up to release contact with the snow and your hand comes back slightly and then push the hand back out forward again in ready for the next plant.
I read one explanation that it is more a twisting of the wrist and the pole is held slightly forward to engage and let come back but rotate wrist upward to release contact without the hand comming back towards yourself. keeping the hand completely static in distance from the skier
Perhaps a differance in technique, I'm not even gonna say where I read that for fear of a runaway thread.
Looks good I will give your eg a try tonight. mmm fresh snow at the local hill.
