Yes, you definitely extend a bit too vertically. You can pratice extending a bit more w some snatch deadlifts from the hang - finish with the legs vertical and the shoulders a bit behind the hips by activating the glutes and keeping the abs tight to slightly hyperextend the hips without hyperextending the lower back. You can also do a complex of a few of these partial DLs followed by a hang snatch.
