I agree with spectral, your leg is pretty much straight. Allowing more knee bend=more leverage at your release which = more power on the ball with minimal effort. =]

I also agree that a little knee bend wouldn't hurt. The other thing I noticed right away is that you are gripping the ball, or at least your swing and release seem to depict that. You can see in your setup that your forearm is tense and it also shows in your release because the ball is coming off your hand at a different angle to the floor every time. That is typically an indicator that you are having to let go of the ball instead of the ball releasing itself from your hand.

The reason I asked was because you muscle the ball up and down (and grip it) as if it were a very light ball. That's the biggest thing that needs to be addressed. From the back, it looks like you have no push off at all. Not having a good pushaway is forcing you to bring up the ball in your backswing yourself, instead of letting gravity do the work. You're either going to have to bring the ball higher is your stance and/or push up instead of just dropping it. That will allow you to be free, then you have to work at actually being free.
