In the first pull, you're lifting the bar out around the knee. Right when the bar leaves the floor, it should be making an angle back toward your body. Once you pass the knee you do a good job on bringing the bar to your hips but the angle is so significant it's making you bump the bar out a little like Javier was talking about.

So right off of the floor the bar should be coming back as well as your knees and your weight distribution. But also remember to keep your chest up at the same time. I think Segment Snatch DLs and/or Segment Snatch Pulls would be a great exercise to help correct that first pull.
