In my opinion, all of those are technically acceptable. You not only have fusion but nice depth of fusion. It looks like your first bead on that practice coupon was bottom left and last bead bottom right. You can tell from the growing depth of your penetration (although you could have been turning the machine up too). Keep up the great work!
