I got a chance to practice some backhands during my vacation.
Some crosscourt, topspin backhands:

Nice swing.
Can you recover quickly enough with that followthru of yours?
Does your narrow stance ever affect your ability to cover the wide forehand side?
Does your narrow stance sometimes cause you to lean back or forwards, so balance and stability is affected.
If no problems from above, it's a good looking stroke.

I was working on hitting flatter than I usually do.

Your mechanics are fine...except that you seem to be admiring the ball too much instead of going back in position.

It looks pretty good to me.
Left arm looks a little disconnected from the rest of the body.
In the second and third strokes, your head stayed for a split second not looking at where the ball was being returned (good job), but then you stopped doing that.

Try to stay on your toes more - you are on your heals a lot, leading to big, sudden movements, like a big step back with the left leg power the stroke instead of a gradual weight shift. Also, you contact point is low, making it hard to hit much top spin - a little knee bend would help.
