Are my reaction vectors correct?

Truth be told I'm not exactly sure what am I looking it... but did I get it right?

Dory: Yes, nice work. Your reaction vectors look correct (if mu = 0). However, it currently looks like your horizontal vector might be drawn backwards. Therefore, you might want to reverse its direction. If it is drawn backwards, then the numeric result for that vector will have a negative sign, telling you the direction of that vector is drawn backwards.

Ah, good, thanks... wasn't sure about the one in the middle. Still no idea what I'm looking at, heh.
