Judge's opinion on my Kelpie's conformation?

I don't show nor is my Kelpie show bred (she's bred for sheep work), but I'm curious to know how a conformation show judge would judge her. I'd like to know what faults they would give her and what they like about her. I'm open to all criticism as I'm just curious to see.
Sorry, the photos aren't ideal :)

It'd vary from judge to judge--the breed standard gives basic guidlines and some things are up to individual interpretation. Some judges may place more importance on one trait over another, too.
I was able to get my GSD critiqued on conformation on a German Shepherd-specific forum on another site, so I'd suggest looking up an active Kelpie-specific forum.
