Nice work, I couldn't really see the angle of your back, but make sure its not arching heavily. You can fix this by looking through your arms a little more and tightening your core a little bit. If you feel yourself losing balance try some of the things explained in this article http://www.beastskills.com/tutorials/tutorials/33

Oh and just giving you a heads up, you might want to change your avatar. It could see as offensive which is against forum rules.

You should try to keep your head looking straight forward. At first it will be strange and you'll lose a little bit of time, but it'll help as soon as you get used to it
"Though all the world may hate us, we are named.
The shadow overtake us, we are known
We're more than carbon and chemicals
Free will is ours and we can't let go
We are the image of the invisible"

Just by what was in the article, when I first started doing handstands (and even sometimes now) I dip my arms to keep my weight forward if I am underbalanced and if I felt I was falling backwards flex my abs and push on the front of my palm as hard as I can. I'm kind of a natural and hand balancing so I don't do anything except constantly train handstands.

And its not offensive to me, but it could be to other people.
