Was just wondering if there is any flaws in my press...
The first lift is 8x155 and the second, 2x170

Your stance would feel better wider. Your first rep has you starting the press and then laying back, which creates distance between bar and shoulder. Shove your hips forward first so that you lay back, and then drive up so the bar path can be vertical from the first rep on.

Thank you, sir.
It had also been mentioned to me that the bar placement (upper-chest) might be a little to low. Is this something that needs correcting as well or am I fine, as is?

It doesn't look bad from this angle.
