I'm also a dialup customer. I started from the last pix and looked at the last four. I see a lack of ankle flex like Ron said that would cause additional stress on the knee because you're relying on a flexed knee too much. You'll find the skis turn better if you're pressing the cuffs of your boots with your shins (by flexing the ankles) because the tips will be more engaged when you edge. Note that the tips are considerably more flared out than the areas under your heels, where your weight is more concentrated. If you stand up right now with straight legs and then flex your ankles forward without bending your knees any more than naturally comes with flexing your ankles, your hips will move slightly forward. This should happen when you're in your ski boots too. It should make your shins sore but take stress off your knees.
