In the first photo notice the posture, the way it is holding itself at full soar - with a very straight leading edge to the wing, and a fairly large head that projects pretty far forward beyond the wings.

Sharp-shinned Hawks will usually look like they are "reaching forward" more with their winds, that is, the wrist is pushed forward a little in full soar. This pushing forward of the wings, combined with a smaller head than a Cooper's Hawk, means that there is very little projection of the head beyond the leading edge of the wings.
