Hands should be higher and usually people put their thumb around.
Pur, Jeff, Jam and Filmy would be able to give you better advice.

1) Put one leg slightly behind you, go up on your toe to flex your calf.
2) Put your hands at your sides, grabbing hold of your obliques when performing the read lat spread posing.
3) Bring your elbows forward and slowly open up your lats, letting the judges watch the process as these muscles unfold.
4) Flare out your lats and round your back slightly to show maximum lat width.
5) Turn your head to the side to bring out the asymmetry of the traps.

Mr. Pelham

its hard to see your actual path of the pose from a picture. You need to kick your shoulders up and back, hands on your hips and flare out your lats and sit back.

thats my shitty lat spread, but i always took pride in my posing (I've won best posing in 2 nationals)

Tighten the chest, suck in the stomach, and pull your lats out until it hurts. I use my thumbs on my hips, some (like timber) put their hands out in front.

My suggestion would be to watch video's of competitors doing it the right way and just mimic them. I modeled my routine after Ed Corney's. he was smooth and graceful, and that helps pull out the poses properly.
